I can't for the life of me remember what this plant is. It's something I bought maybe 2 year ago. It has succulent-like pointed leaves but the tips are not sharp. I'm sure I have pic's on my laptop and my "plant folder" is very organized with a separate file folder for each plant but I've glanced through my long, long list a couple of times and so far haven't found it ... and I have brain freeze!

hmm ... not sure. The leaves are thicker than those on my spineless yucca and they have a smoother, rubbery like feel.

Could it be some type of dracaena? Just a wild guess! May many blessings come your way this month!

Sue and Sharon,

Thanks so much for your input and suggestions. I did find a picture of this plant in my Dracaena folder with a question mark and the possible cultivar name 'Carmen' but I'm still not sure. It does kinda have the growth habit and appearance of a young Dracaena fragrans but the leaves are thicker and more succulent than my other Dracaena fragrans so I'm still uncertain. I will watch for changes as it grows and hopefully determine it's exact identity. If I get a chance, I may just un-pot it in the next day or two and take a look at the roots and see if that gives any clues. Green Grin!

Thanks so much!

Dave, I didn't know that ... I thought all Agave had sharp tips and/or spiney leaf margins. I'll have to do some research now on Agave. Green Grin!
