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.
