What happens after an agave blooms? According to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum this is what happens to most agaves after they bloom–

“In all but a few species the rosette dies after flowering and fruiting, having spent all of its life energy to produce a huge quantity of seeds-a monocarpic (once-fruiting) life cycle. The plants literally flower themselves to death.”
