The 26-year-old agave plant on Wichita State's campus is now in mid-bloom.
Campus floral supervisor Kari Ossman has kept a close eye on the plant and considers the plant's blooming a real education.
"The next phase will be to watch it bloom, to measure it, and to kind of watch it after it blooms to see if the plant really does die," she said.
