    They don't pup?
    I don't actually grow any, never interested. I only grow the southwest, South American and African cacti, as well as tropical cactus.

    I should mention that the barbs on the side of the leaf and the long black needles at the end of the leaf are lined with a slight toxin, so be careful [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    BTW They only bloom once every 100 years and then die, leaving pups around the mother to carry on. (hence the name century) I think they are an eternal plant.
    Not so,although some very slow growing Agave may take nearly 100 years it typically takes 15-30.

    Well yes but for sake of easyness........ It wouldn't make sense to say 15-30yrs deserves the name century. A short explanation of name was my intent.
