Your hair grows so fast you can have a ponytail in 6 months?

Please share your secret!

I think ES is implying that it's going to be a nightmare to keep a clean lawn.

You can plant the thousands of bulbils and have more plants. Or sell them online.

Its called an agave death bloom. They live for 10-25 years and then do this. A glorious ending and they use 100% of their energy doing it.

Right before this whole quarantine thing earlier this year, I remember seeing quite a few of these doing the same thing, mostly beside roads and in those little areas in the middle of the road that have plants in them. I can confirm that they're MASSIVE. I wonder what it was like after they dropped all their bulbils.

so walked by this beauty and saw it was dropping something...i gathered these up but they appear to just be dropped flowers....i rubbed them onto each other incase there was any pollination to do and placed them buried in moist sphag….i feel like these were the ones that did not take...ES?
