All I know is that alot of them grow around here. I think they're somehow used in the process of making tequila, but I don't know anything about that.

This one is huge, it's about 6ft tall and has a bunch of younger ones around the base of it. Some of the ones nearby are starting to begin to grow that huge flower stalk.

I don't think it's a cactus.
They only flower once in their life....after they flower, they die!

it's a succulent, and it's used in the process of making tequila, it really doesn't have any special properties other than it makes a damn fine jam or jelly.

That type of Agave in your pic isn't very common around my area, but if you drive a short way into the mountains theres alot of different types of Agave, on our property we just have the ones that I posted a pic of.
I was walking through the desert today and found this fella fairly close to my house, just starting to flower. I'm going to try to take a picture of it every now and then to show the progression from a small shoot, to a huge flower, some of these flower shoots that come out of this species of Agave can get HUGE, like 15+ feet.

wow round here we call those century plants i dont know why i assume cause they take so long to flower. also the ones around here dont die when the flower but the flower stalk does the leaves and everything still live on. ill take a picture of a big fat 7 or 8 foot one at my dads place its got a about a 10 flower stalk on it right now. ill post it in the next few days. peace
