My Resume

Spring is the best season for planting yucca. It will grow rapidly and get well settled before winter. You can plant yucca by cuttings or by seeds. Generally cutting is used for propagation because seeds take a very long time for germination. For a new cutting, you must allow it to dry for a few days and plant this cutting in coarse soil. Yucca is a slow growing plant and it will take few weeks to make roots. Presoaking of the seeds for 20 hours in warm water may reduce the germination time. After germination plant seeds in part sun.

Another variety of yucca

Always add little water to new planted yucca. Beds must be raised. sand, small gravel or granite chips, such as chicken grit, will keep dry the root neck and bottom of the stem. Sand should contain some clay or peat for clumping. Rhizome is underground and very near to surface where one can't compress them.
