Caring Tips

Watering

Yucca thrives in full sunlight, so they're perfect for that west-facing window where everything else burns up. They also do well in bright, indirect sun. Growing yucca in low light will lead to fewer flowers and thinner growth for the plant. Yuccas do not need high quality soil, but it needs to be well-draining. The yucca is indigenous to arid regions that don't get a lot of rainfall, so you should keep that in mind when watering yuccas. Give your plant just enough water for it to be healthy. Watering needs to occur in a manner that mimics rainfall in dry climates. During dry periods in the middle of summer yuccas may require watering every 7 to 10 days. However, during a rainy season, your plant may require very little, if any, watering.
