Long time back i read an account in some Homeopathic Materia Medica that Red Indian Tribes use the skin and the juice of Agave americana to treat hydrofobia patents with the leaves of Agave americana. They give the patent its leaves to chew for few days and he/she were fully cured after the treatment. Is this the same plant.

may be the same … but i could not confirm. it is a very usefull information

Appears to be Agave angustifolia ‘Marginata’ as per link:

Agave species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net) 

It seems to be Agave americana (ash coloured leaves)

Agave species. Could be A. sisalana used for manufacture of  fibres.

I agree with Agave sisalana Perrine leaves used to manufacture fibre, alcohol produced from the stem/ rootstock

If there are no prickles on leaf margins, than it will be Agave sisalana Perrine as per keys available at Lucid Central

Pl. check the prickle at leaf margins & let us know.

Please check for agave cantala and see the spines and confirm identity.

To me it appears to be Agave angustifolia due to relatively small prickles and developing plantlets (bulbils) as per keys in Lucidcentral

Unless other characters (floral ) are verified it is not possible to confirm it as A.angustifolia.

What do you say about this one?

Is the id correct as Agave angustifolia Haw. ?

Based on the general appearance of the plant, I too would suggest A. angustifolia Haw.
