Origin and care
The Yucca mainly occurs in Guatemala and Honduras.
The Yucca likes to be in a bright spot (no direct sun) but half shade is also possible. In the summer a place on the terrace is not a problem but beware of temperatures below 8 degrees.
In the growth period from April to August, once every two weeks fertilize. Do not water too much in winter. Slightly more water in the growing season than in the winter.
Keep the soil rather drier. The plant should not stand with its feet in the water. Remove the leaves of the Yucca from time to time with a damp cloth.
Because this pot is provided with a substrate and a water meter, watering is easy! Upon arrival there is little water, fill the pot slowly with water (sometimes wait) and you will see that the meter automatically rises. All you have to do is keep an eye on this meter. If you go on holiday, you can fill the pot almost half full (you can see this at the meter that comes to an end above its maximum) and you can safely leave for 14 days.
In addition, it is also not bad if the plants do not get too much water too quickly.
The substrate absorbs the water, so when the water meter is at the bottom the substrate is still damp, but there is no water at the bottom of the pot.
The plant then has more than enough for 4 summer days.
So leaving a few days dry is certainly not a problem, especially in times when the plant evaporates little is recommended!
