The Yucca is mainly found in Guatemala and Honduras.
The Yukka likes to be in a light spot (no direct sun), but half shade is also possible. In the summer a spot on the terrace is not a problem, but beware of temperatures below 8 degrees. Avoid outside or the midday sun.
During the growing period from April to August, fertilize once every two weeks. Do not water too much, especially in winter. During the growing period, water slightly more than in winter.
Keep the soil slightly drier. The plant should not stand with its feet in the water. Occasionally wipe the leaves of the Yucca with a damp cloth.
Dry air is not a problem for the Yucca houseplant, so spraying is not immediately necessary. However, a single spray or in the summer once in the rain ensures that the dust is removed.
Because the Yucca needs little nutrition, fertilizing is only advisable in spring and summer. no food in winter! Too much nutrition can lead to burnt roots. Use Pokon green plant food for this.
The yucca will keep producing new leaves from the heart. The lower leaves may die (natural process) and you can remove them by pulling them down.
Check the Yuca regularly for diseases. Look under and between the leaf, the sooner you notice the disease, the greater the chance of effective control.
A yucca can flower outside. The flowers are spectacular to see, when a yucca starts to bloom in the house it is advisable to remove the flower. This flower takes a lot of energy from the plant.
It is advisable to transfer the Yuka into a larger pot immediately after purchase. We recommend doing this in the spring so that any damaged roots can recover quickly "in this growth period".
