Giant Century Plant - 5 Gallons
Furcraea macdougallii - A large-rosette forming succulent that has 6 foot long dark-green stiffly-upright leaves with regularly-spaced hooked teeth and grows up on a trunk that can be 8 feet tall or more - in habitat it can get up over 20 feet and is considered the tallest of the Agave relatives. We have seen this plant typically flower in cultivation when the trunk is 5 to 10 feet tall. When this plant blooms it produces a spike that can rise an additional 20 ft, bearing greenish-white flowers and then bulbils at the flower base - these bulbils perpetuate this plant's life as it is monacarpic and the main plant dies at flowering.
