    Just courious if anyone has one or more of these?
    This gentlemen in Gotebo, Oklahoma (he is 84) has one and its almost as tall as his two story house, and in full bloom and its awesome! :)

    He planted his about 10 years ago, and from what I have studied about it, that it only blooms 10 to 20 years.
    Bloom stalks can shoot up 20 to 30 feet.

    It is also known as: American Aloe, but it is not related to a true aloe plant.
    Agave, is the source of tequila and other alcoholic drinks.
    (no Im not "stilling" this plant*giggles*)

    I know where to purchase this plant, I just would like to hear from other people that own them and how are they doing.
