I'm thinking agave, but when I search, I can't find any this blue. I'm afraid it got overwatered and I'd like to replace it if I can find one. Or alternatively if it can be propagated, that would be great.

First of all, welcome neighbor.
You bought one of those hideous painted succulents Lowes, Walmart and HD should be thrown in jail for selling.
It looks like a Haworthia. It should be OK once it outgrows the paint. Don't water it too much. Eventually it will offset and you can propagate them.
Welcome!

I agree with quercusnut and will add that a plant that can't respirate completely (because of blue paint blocking its pores) needs even less water than Haworthis normally need, which isn't much.

Does the container have a hole at the bottom? What kind of light does the plant get? These questions are potentially related to the question of what made it rot out. Other than the paint job, of course. Smiling

Glad you found us. We'll treat you right and tell you the truth. As far as it can be known that is. nodding
