Maybe Agave angustifolia 'Marginata'? I don't know much about agave though. Just did a quick google search for white and green agave :-)

100mphtortoise,
That's what I think it is also. Also I have these around my house. I have to winter them in the basement cellar. I can send you some starter pups out with the cactus plants? If you want. Free just pay postage.

I agree with the previous, and it's quite a stoloniferous plant if you put it in the ground.

Ya stush that sounds great, how much do you think the postage would be, sorry ive never gotten plants in the mail before. And I had a question how long would it take do you think until the pups are as big as the mother plant.

Couldn't it rather be a Furcraea foetida?

Ok, I'm back 100mph,
I have sent out many of these during late winter early spring. I sent them Priory Mail but now they could go first class at a lot cheaper price. The pups would have little to no roots but they grow roots fast. Just keep in a dry mix and spray the tops until you see new growth or roots. They are vary easy plants. I should be able to ship in a 3" x 3" x 6" box with your cactus seedlings for under $2. I have plenty for anyone else?

Oh, sorry to say, the spiral ones strighten out when over watered. I can't tell them apart now. It must have been a growing condition that formed the spirals. They do have one that is more spiral than the ones I saw on the mother plant. I am having a hard time locating one. A friend on another garden site is growing them from seed so I will see how he is doing. I tried to find the seeds myself but unable to.

I agree with Jessie's ID. Nice plants, Stush!

Hey, Jurgen! How're you doing? Furcraea foetida would not have teeth on the leaf margins & leaves are much wider than this Agave. =)

If you ever prune one of these and don't take extra caution, stand by for fissures in your skin - it's like Nature's hacksaw. And if it grows in SouCal-or-the-like weather, it won't be long before you have plentiful stolons.

123Greta,
I don't have any more left. I sold the two mother plants because I was having too much trouble wintering them over in my basement. They are plentyful at Florida. If I get a chance, I'll try to get some starters from friends there.
