This query is in reference to the image attached, wherein a long central structure can be seen in the middle of the plant. I have personally observed that at around 2 PM it wasn't present and in the evening around 5:30 PM, I was astonished to finding such a structure without any explanation. I would like to request to the community members to help me identify the structure and the reason for its sudden growth. Thanks!

What kind of plant is this? Agave? Yucca?
Regardless, it's producing a flower stalk.

I believe what you have is an agave. That growth is the flower stem or stalk. After it flowers it will either die or not bloom again for a number of years.

The slang name for these is Century Plant. They are popular in Florida. The amazing thing about these is that you can almost watch the flower stalk grow. In a matter of days it can be taller than a house. I have never witnessed one of these plants living after blooming.
