Hi all…I originally posted this on the plant ID forum, but thought that maybe this may be a better place… This plant (1st pic) was given to me by my BIL more than a year ago. It has not put on any new growth that I can tell, but is still alive. The second pic is one that he gave me a couple days ago. Says that it is the same plant. The first he called a Confederate Rose…Agave sp. The second he said is a pup from his original 'Confederate Rose'…aka. Agave sp.
So, my question is, What is it really…and is there possibly a difference in appearance and size because of growing conditions? And why has my baby in pic.1 not grown? After a year?
I did find Agave 'baja', in plant files, and it does appear to me to be what I have, in pic.#1. Any and all opinions are greatly appreciated! :-) Thanks so much for looking!
