The perfect Caribbean Vibes plant!

The Yucca Plant is robust and reliable. It sports long bright green spineless leaves which grow into a rosette from the top of a bare trunk, and it can survive almost anything, even drought!

It's pretty easy going when it comes to light too, just try to avoid direct sun or its leaves might go a tad brown.

Key Benefits of the Yucca Plant

Yucca plants have notable air-purifying properties when kept indoors. In conjunction with other plants, they filter toxins and transform carbon dioxide into the fresh air we breathe.

They are also great at soaking electromagnetic waves that are raised by all the modern gadgets that surround our present-day lives.

Yucca Plant Care Tips

  • Yucca needs a lot of bright, indirect sunlight. Some direct light from time to time can be tolerated but too much of it can scorch its leaves.
  • When the top layers of the soil have completely dried out, it’s time to water the plant again, letting the excess drain out. Don’t overwater it, the Yucca doesn’t like soggy feet.
  • Average UK home temperatures and humidity are perfect for this plant.
  • During the growing season, you can fertilise it weekly with a weak liquid solution. 
  • Repotting is only needed once every two years during the Spring to give the plant room to grow, use a deep container and a well-draining soil mix

The Yucca Plant Story

Also known as Yucca gigantea, Spineless Yucca, Stick Yucca and Giant Yucca.

Where is it from?

Native to Mexico and the Caribbean.

Who is the Yucca Plant?

The Yucca genus has more than 40 perennial plants but only a few are grown as houseplants.

It takes an unusual pruning method. It needs to be removed from its container and the trunk cut in half. The bottom rotted halve is replanted and with time, new leaves will start to grow. The top half can be used for propagation!

Good For You!

  • Happiness: A variety of studies have shown that being around plants has a number of wellbeing benefits. They can help increase life satisfaction and reduce feelings of stress and fatigue.
  • Concentration: Houseplants can also improve people’s accuracy when completing challenging tasks.

Is The Yucca Plant The Right Plant For Me?

Yucca are the perfect plants for beginners or for those without a natural green thumb. They tend to thrive on a little neglect rather than too much attention. They are also not prone to pests.

This plant can grow quite tall given enough time, so, if you are not keen on its unconventional pruning, make sure you have enough space (or someone to adopt it after it’s too big for you!).

How tall does it grow? In their natural habitat, they can reach 30 feet tall, as an indoor plant, with the correct care, it will reach a maximum of 10 feet tall.

Fact: My tough leaves are strong enough to be used by weavers to make baskets and jewelry, while my trunk is used to make a rich soap.

Toxicity: Keep away from nibbly pets and curious children.

Care Instructions

Light

I like bright, direct sunlight but will tolerate some light shade; however, this will slow my growth and lighten the colour of my leaves.

Water

Allow the top of my soil to dry out before watering. In low light conditions, allow half of the soil to dry out first. I can cope with some degree of drought but please ensure there is adequate drainage and don't allow me to sit in water.

Temperature

I am super adaptable so should endure all household temperatures.

Feeding

I don't need much feeding but an occasional weak feed would be nice.

Toxicity

Keep me away from pets and children as I can be toxic.

Grooming

I don't need much grooming.

Care

My leaf tips are sharper than they look so make sure you take care whilst handling and repotting.

General Information About Your Plant

Origin

I am native to some parts of the US, Mexico and Central America.

Size

I can reach up to 2m indoors, but I am very slow growing, so you'll have to be patient.
