Can someone tell me what that plant is? It have grown very high and need to do something with it, but I don't know what species it is so I can't do anything.
It have one stem (not so big, but long) and long leaves.

Could be Dracaena ,

General Care of Agaves:
temperature: Plants in this family tolerate hot temperatures but will grow well at common room temperatures.
medium: A well-drained medium with adequate sand or other coarse material to promote drainage and give the medium weight since many of these plants become very top-heavy. The mixes for succulents given above would be good for the members of this family.
water: Water thoroughly but allow the medium to dry between waterings. Dracaenas often develop burned tips to their leaves if given water with fluoride in it.
light: Although they will survive and grow slowly under lower light intensities, most of these plants produce bright colors under brighter light.
fertilization: Fertilize sparingly to reduce the rate of growth. Plants often respond poorly under high levels of fertilization.
pests and problems: Relatively pest free, but mealy bugs can be a serious problem.
grooming: Remove old, discolored leaves.
propagation: Separation of suckers, division of rhizomes, stem cuttings, leaf or leaf section cuttings, and seed are all practiced as methods of propagation of the Agavaceae.

Lai izdodās.
