How to plant the Yucca in a pot?
This houseplant is delivered in a standard growers pot. It’s best for the growth of the Yucca to plant it in a decorative planter. Select a pot that is at least 20 percent larger than the growers pot.
Cover the bottom of the decorative planter with a layer of potting soil. Does the decorative pot have a hole? Then start with a layer of hydro grains, so the water can drain away. The Yucca should be 1 to 2 cm below the rim. Remove the growers pot and place the plant in the middle of the decorative pot. Fill the pot with fresh potting soil and press it down slightly.

• Plant nutrition
How do I take care of my Yucca?
Yuccas originate from the desert and can handle heat and drought. They are very strong plants that require very little attention. They cannot handle the afternoon sun, and only need a little bit of water when the soil feels dry to the touch.
Give your Yucca a little plant nutrition every two weeks and new potting soil every three years. Water it twice a week in summer when needed, but always only when the soil feels dry to the touch.
You can also move your Yucca outdoors in summer. It will take the leaves some time to get used to the heat, so place it in the shade for starters, and leave it in the sun for an hour longer every day, for five consecutive days. Once the night temperature drops below eight degrees, you should move it back inside.
Yuccas grow towards the light, so for a smooth straight stem, it is a good idea to gently turn the plant with the low end to the sunlight every now and then. Yuccas have a natural dormant period in November and December. Then water less and don't use plant nutrition.
You can carefully pull away the dried old leaves at the bottom of the plant. Under the old leaves, the stem is white, but that naturally changes colour.
Let your plant join in watching a good western - preferably with Clint Eastwood.
