Introducing the Furcraea macdougallii, which is a low-maintenance succulent plant that belongs to the Furcraea family. It is sometimes misspelled as Furcraea macdougalii (with a single “l”). 

Native to Mexico, the Furcraea macdougallii is sometimes referred to as the "MacDougal's Giant Century Plant" due to its impressive size and growth rate. A mature Furcraea is a cross between an agave and a small palm. 


The term "giant" is used to describe its large stature, with leaves that can reach up to 8 feet in length and a plant overall height of about 15 feet.

The term "century plant" is often used to describe succulents in the Agave family, including the Furcraea macdougalii, because of the misconception that they only bloom once every 100 years.

While this is not entirely accurate, these plants do have a long lifespan and typically take several years to reach maturity and produce their tall flower spikes.

 So, the name "MacDougal's Giant Century Plant" captures both its size and the perception of its infrequent blooming. The Furcraea plant is a large succulent with a rosette of long, sword-like leaves that can reach a length of 8 feet. The leaves are bluish-green in color and have sharp spines along the edges. The plant forms a sturdy trunk over time, adding to its architectural appeal. 

The Furcraea macdougallii produces tall flower spikes that can reach a height of 15 to 20 feet. The flowers are greenish-white in color and are arranged in clusters along the spike. The blooming period occurs once the plant reaches maturity, which can take several years. The plant then produces bulbils (plantlets) at the flower base, which continue to live because it is monocarpic, with the main plant dying after flowering.  

When it comes to Furcraea macdougallii care, it is a drought-tolerant plant and should be watered sparingly. To prevent root rot, allow the soil to dry between waterings. This succulent thrives in full sun to partial shade. Place it somewhere where it will receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Using well-draining succulent soil is essential for the Furcraea macdougallii.

The Furcraea macdougallii thrives in indoor temperatures between 65-75°F and requires well-draining soil to prevent root rot. Outdoors, it is best suited for USDA hardiness zones 9-11, where it can tolerate temperatures as low as 20°F.  

Propagation of the Furcraea macdougallii can be done through offsets or by seed. Offsets are small plantlets that grow at the base of the mother plant and can be separated and replanted to create new plants. Seed propagation involves collecting seeds from the plant, sowing them in a well-draining soil mix, and keeping them consistently moist until they germinate.  

Overall, Furcraea macdougallii is a unique and striking plant that would make a beautiful addition to any garden or landscape. Its distinctive appearance and low maintenance requirements make it a popular choice for many gardeners.
