Yucca - elephantipes
Description:
Welcome to the desert! The stem of this tough desert plant splits off into three leafy branches. This gives the Yucca elephantica an impressive effect. This desert plant tolerates heat and dry conditions well. Give the plant a bit of water only when the soil is dry to the touch. The Yucca does like light, but not strong, midday sun. It feels like you're on the prairie!

Planting+
You have a number of options upon receipt of your giant yucca (Yucca elephantipes).
  • Stand it in an attractive planter with holes in the base. Cover the holes with a layer of gravel or potsherds and stand the plant, complete with nursery pot on top. The planter will need to be stood in a dish to collect drained off water.
  • Pot it up into an attractive planter with holes in the base. Cover the holes with a layer of gravel or potsherds and add potting compost. Stand the root ball at the correct depth and fill the pot with compost around the roots. Press firmly down - leave a space of about 3 cm from the top edge of the pot. Stand the planted in a dish to collect drained off water.
  • Stand it in an attractive planter without holes but do layer the bottom of the pot with gravel so the plant's pot is off the bottom. A wide planter is best as then you can see whether or not the bottom of the pot is standing in water or not.
  • Or just stand the plant, nursery pot and all, on a dish - on a layer of gravel, or just directly on the dish.
Care+
Keep your palm lily (Yucca elephantipes) growing well with a weekly watering - add plant food for leafy plants to the water fortnightly. Water twice a week in warm summers but really only when the potting compost feels dry to the touch. The yucca (Yucca elephantipes) has a natural dormant period in November and December and will then require less watering and no feed. Continue as before after the dormant period is past.

The yucca is fairly resistant to the dry indoor air of our homes. As the plant has a tendency to grow towards the light, it is a good idea to give it a quarter turn every month - standing it, pot and all, on a wheeled base makes this easier of course.
