Black-green daggers! ‘Ocahui’ is what the native people of northwestern Mexico called fiber or cordage. It is native to dry areas where it is found perched on the edges of rock faces and cliffs. This plant has done very well in most climates where it quickly forms a dense dark-green rosette that is made up of numerous smooth narrow spear-like leaves. Tolerates excessive moisture better than most agaves.
