Seen on the outskirts of the city by a young friend. Seeking species id.


agave bulbils


I too think this is bulbils of Agave. It would be good If there is a picture that shows the full plant.


For ID- 201211-NS2- Flora of Madhya Pradesh: Photographed this spiney shrub at ” Chikhral Jungle” in Betul, MP. Localities call dis ” Kekchi” and use it as hedge.
It propagates through Viviparous germination. In d centre of this plant a palm like structure appears on which a new plant germinates. This palm structure has five protrudings like fingers on it.
Tribals cut dat palm like structure to decorate their house…put “Diyas/ earthen lamps” on it.


Looks like Ketki, Agave species. My pictures for comparison.


looks like Agave angustifolia


Yes Agave sp. but …, unlike Agave angustifolia it doesnt have marginal bands of white on leaves.
… is Ketki refers to agave americana ????


In reference literature Agave americana is mentioned as Ketki but in general all species of Agave are named as Ketki or related names like Kekchi, Kekti etc.
Just to add, Agave cantala is also reported from Central India.
