This and your other recent picture look like they are are not Agave americana, which has pretty vicious spines.

I am thinking maybe this could be a Furcraea, maybe F. foetida, which would be mostly spineless along leaf margins.

I'm not 100% sure here, but that's as far as I got with an ID. Maybe @mcvansoest would know more.

Please let me know what you think. Maybe you recall or captured some signage from the bot garden?

Must of messed up in my notes, I'll be getting this rectified.

Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

Yeah certainly not A. americana mediopicta. I think the Furcraea ID looks pretty good. Only Agave that I have seen that looks a bit like that is Agave sisalana mediopicta, but its leaves tend to be way straighter and not floppy.
It is what it is!
