Andy The Yucca Plant

LIGHTING FOR YOUR YUCCA PLANT

Andy likes sunlight, he needs to be in a bright place and can take full sun. Be careful in the peak of summer with a south facing window as Andy might overheat. Andy can even be placed outside during the summer months.

 

WATERING YOUR YUCCA PLANT

In the summer from March to September, we recommend watering once a week. Watering Wednesday is a great way to remember.

In the winter from October to February reduce watering to once or twice a month. Let Andy almost completely dry out before watering in the winter. Houseplant watering guide

 

HUMIDITY FOR YOUR YUCCA PLANT

Andy will tolerate normal room humidity.

 

WHAT FERTILISER SHOULD I USE FOR MY YUCCA

From March to August give Andy some houseplant fertiliser every two weeks when watering.

 

REPOTTING YOUR YUCCA

When Andy's roots start to come out of the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot, it is time to repot. For soil, a well drained potting soil is perfect.

 

YUCCA PLANT CARE PROBLEMS

  • Crisp, brown lower leaves result from under-watering but lower leaves are natural shed as the plant grows.

  • Low light levels can result in drooping leaves but check for over or under-watering.

  • Some yellowing of lower leaves is normal. Sudden yellowing and limpness of lower leaves is due to overwatering.
