These AGAVE plants that existed under our outdoor staircasehad multiplied and the more I make cuttings and give them a big clean-up they seem to thrive and shoot more baby plants. This plant was already there when we bought the house. They are the 'in' plant at the moment on this this part of the world. They are considered as succulents and require very little care and watering. I have transplanted quite a few and they are all thriving too.
