Hello Beauties, long time no post! But today I am back with a whole new blog series. A household plant series. I don’t know why but it seems I have become obsessed with indoor house plants this year, well that and white walls. Weird obsession, I know! Anyways today I am going to be sharing with you one of my favorite household plants, the yucca.
Yuccas come in a wide range of colors, from green to blue tint in color with spiky leaves. Sometimes you’ll find white, cream, or even yellow on the leaves depending on the type of yucca you purchase. Long spiky leaves grow out of wood stem known as a cane. My yucca tree only has one cane, but I’ve seen `other plants at my doctors office, realtors, and the green house that has multiple stems growing side by side in the same pot.
Yucca’s are extremely easy to grow! Once you have potted your yucca in your home, place it in a room with bright, indirect light. You’ll know if your yucca is receiving to much light by its leaf. If the leaves have brown or white spots on them, move them back from the light.
Yucca’s make very good indoor and outdoor plants. The require little care, making them somewhat drought resistant. In addition to needing little water, they also can survive in poor quality soil with little fertilization. However I would recommend a three to one mixture of soil and peat to help the pot dry out and keep root rot from occurring.
Overall yucca’s are easy to grow plants. They are a wonderful addition to any gardner, beginner to expert. They require little to no maintenance, but beware of frost! They don’t like cold weather. Be sure to pot them in roomy pots, be sure to mix peat in with there soil to help the pots drain better, to keep root rot from occurring.
