Post Furcraea id please
Following the successful id of my mystery Salvia I thought that I would try for an id on my seed grown Furcraea which bloomed in June/July.
It was grown from what I was told was Beschorneria yuccoides seed but it clearly wasn't! Furcraea foetida maybe?
The foliage is stiffer (and rougher to the touch) than the F.longeava that I'm growing.............

My understanding, from historical posts here, is that all Furcraea that have bulbils are F. parmentieri and that plants in the UK that are labelled F. longaeva are generally F. parmentieri. I'll try to hunt down the old discussions.

Thank you for the replies David. :D

So I will now assume that this one that has flowered and the four that I am growing from bulbils and seed received from a member on the EPS site are just different forms of F.parmenteiri then.
