I was just handed an "infant" century plant by my MIL who said "find him a home". I don't know the first thing about Century plants. What care does it need? I want to make sure that when I put it down I don't kill it. Thanks in advance.

The Century Plant, so called because it seems to only bloom once a century but actually it lives on average about 25 years, prefers full sun and well draining soil. When it does actually bloom, it zaps so much of the plants strength it dies afterward.
