How to Propagate Agave Plant

Carefully remove shoots (called suckers or pups) around the base of the parent plant making sure it has it's own roots. Wear gloves when handling the agave plant to protect you from it's wicked spines at the tip and along the edges of the leaves.
Fill up a container with potting soil or a cactus/succulent medium.
Make a shallow hole and set the pup on the center.
Add more soil.
Water and place it in bright location away from direct sunlight for a couple of days to avoid shock. These are extremely heat resistant and loves full sun. Add (decorative) rocks to accent the plant.
