There are around 200 species of agave. These plants have thick, fleshy, pointy leaves that are edged with spines. Though they look like cacti or aloe, they are not closely related. Many agaves have acidic sap that can hurt the skin. Agave americana is grown in homes and gardens. It is also used to make sweet agave syrup.
