Agave Plants; the razor sharp points on the ends of the leaves

Zone Lansing, Michigan | bushjk added on August 5, 2017 | Answered

Can you cut off the needle points that are hard and brown from the ends of the leaves? I have a very large indoor agave plant and can hardly get close enough to water it without getting poked. The ends literally will puncture your skin. Any advice??
