I am not sure which plant you are naming in the 1st pic...but this is Yucca rostrata

http://www.smgrowers.com/products/plants/plantdisplay.asp?pl...

and this is Yucca rigida

http://www.monrovia.com/plant-catalog/plants/2201/blue-yucca...

and this is Yucca elephantipes (spineless yucca) for comparison

Smiling Left side of the fish. Found it homeless on a dump and I thought it some thing else due to kind unarmed leaves and over watered it. Imagine my surprise when it started to turn into a fine leaved Yukka. I am waiting for it to grow so that I can ID it, mostly you get the other one. Thank you, your ID I feel is correct but let it grow for positive ID .

Masud.

Masud, thank you, but I don't think so! That would be a heck of a trip in the mail. Hilarious!

I agree, Yucca elephantipes in the second set of photo's.

Photo #1 reminds me of Ananas (Pineapple) ... is that a possibility?

Lin, pineapple is a humidity loving tropical. At first I also thought it was pineapple but when I asked the nursery owner he corrected me. Now I can grow a pineapple after four years of trying to change the micro climate. This is the first year that ferns have survived, I will cut the head of a pineapple and try.

Masud.
