Plants I'm Growing: Agave Filifera Blooms (July 9, 2012)
The plant itself is not especially big. It stands less than two feet tall. This gigantic organ of reproduction is therefore about six times the size of the plant that generated it. It's like a tulip blossom standing five feet tall, or, in human terms, the equivalent of a man with a 36-foot-long erection. It's no wonder the plant dies after it blooms.
