It seems like possibly an Agave stricta, however I cannot find any photos anywhere that show the flared leaf bases, nor does A. stricta have very long leaves. The leaves are almost 2 feet tall. I don't mean to be a doubter, but I'd really like to know what this dang thing is!
She's been pretty easy to handle, actually - haven't gotten hurt yet!
Best, Jude

Hi Ken,

I guess you are right - Agave spec.
And I think it is A. stricta.
A very nice Agave, but I would nearly reccommend to wear protective goggles......

Happy growing, Bernhard.

That plant looks exactly like one of my Agaves, but the bloody tag has gone missing so I can't give you a species name.

On a completely different note, I'm wondering if somebody can identify this newly acquired succulent - possibly a Dasylirion of some kind?
