As part of the life cycle, however, once they grow a main stalk from the center of the agave and bloom, the agave dies.
The strong stalk grows straight from the center of the agave and reminds me of Jack in the Beanstalk. The stalk can grow 8 to 12 feet high. And then once the stalk reaches for the sky, you get these gorgeous flowers that pop out.
These flowers also drop little baby agave shoots that start the cycle over again. I have been able to grow numerous agave in my yard from the cactus pups that have started on their own in my yard.
