Light: Yucca plants require 4-6 hours of direct sun. While they may survive in only indirect light, they will need some direct rays in order to grow. Place in front of an east, west, or south-facing window.
Water: Yuccas are highly sensitive to overwatering. Water your plant once a week during the spring and summer growing season, but make sure it has excellent drainage and dries out between waterings. Come winter, decrease your watering cadence to once every few weeks (or even less). Never let a Yucca plant sit in a tray of water. Signs of overwatering include leaf yellowing and cane rotting at the soil line.
Environment: The Yucca is native to the arid climates of the Americas and Caribbean, running from Guatemala to southeastern Mexico. In its native environment, the yucca can grow to 30 feet tall and produce white flowers.
Toxicity: Reported to be toxic to pets and humans.
- Yucca has relatively few insect problems, but it is susceptible to scale or mealybugs, so make sure to check your plant regularly.
