How to care for your Yucca Cane
Use these instructions to care for a Yucca Cane. This guide will tell you how to water a Yucca Cane; its light, temperature, humidity preferences and any additional care it might need to help it grow.
Your Yucca prefers bright indirect light. It will tolerate lower light, but growth will slow. If the Yucca is exposed to direct light, the leaves may burn.
Water your Yucca when the top 50%-75% of the soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.
Your Yucca Cane does not require any extra humidity, but will appreciate an occasional misting.
Your Yucca Cane prefers temperatures between 65°-75° F.
Feed once every month during the spring and summer with a liquid fertilizer for indoor plants.
Yucca Plants are mildly toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will cause mouth and stomach irritation and possible vomiting.
You may see “pups” popping up off the side of the mother cane at the soil level. These can provide you with more Yucca plants. If you wish to plant the mature pups, only do so in the Fall–this does the least amount of damage to the original plant. Remove the mature dark green pup (pale and whitish pups need more time on the mother cane) with a clean, sharp cut between the parent plant and the pup. Make sure to take some of the parent roots where the pup is attached, along with the pup. This root piece from the parent will form the new root system for the pup once it is placed in fresh potting soil. Water thoroughly and apply a diluted application of fertilizer.
