These don't offset, is that right?
Agave
"American aloe plant," 1797, from Greek Agaue, proper name in mythology (mother of Pentheus), from agauos "noble," perhaps from agasthai "wonder at".

Most I have seen eventually offset, but sometimes not until just before flowering

My first one obtained from PDN towards the end of 2011 or beginning of 2012, this one is starting to pup.

Largest ones I've ever seen, for a price I would not have expected. Didn't buy one but was tempted...
