My father had a cactus they kept bumping into the ceiling. He cut it in half, and then had two cactuses that could have burst through the ceiling

An agave is not a cactus, it's a farking succulent.  People who don't know the difference are morans, and make me sick!

You sound like a prickly fellow.

So, why couldn't they have moved the damn thing? It's not like it was planted and grew fast enough to break through the roof in a day.
 
2014-04-28 08:55:19 AM  
Cactus growth is directly related to available water. Maybe cut back on the water?
 
2014-04-28 08:56:24 AM  
I hate when that happens.

I'm gonna go ahead and guess that maybe they live in a climate where the agave cannot grow outdoors.....

good point, in that case they are pretty well screwed then right? Maybe they should have taken a clipper to it.

Actually, that spire indicates that the plant is dying. Once they flower like this they die. But the growth of these spires can be as much as two feet per day till they stop at 15-18'.

I had a cactus once, but then I took a spine to the knee.

I thought it was going to be about a cactus that smashed through the roof from above. This is far more boring
 
2014-04-28 09:57:57 AM  
But, having been in possession of the plant for such a long period of time, it's not going to be easy for them to say goodbye.

"Once it has finished flowering we will cut it so we can fit the glass back on, then we will probably leave it to die," Mr Sumner-Wilson said.

"In that time it will produce off-shoots and we shall pop them up ready for sale.


I feel kind of sorry for the old boy/girl, but at least he'll have left behind a family of Audrey Juniors.

And when you think about it, there's something delightfully trollish about selling people potted plants that, after a few decades, suddenly turn into the Incredible Hulk of vegetation and smash their owners' houses.

For the life of me, at first glance I read "giant cactus" as "Galactus", and a quick GIS for "galactus cactus"
turned up this little gem:
