Separating And Repotting Yucca Offshoots Pups: A Guide To Growing Yucatan Yuccas For Success!
The first thing you need to do when growing yuccas is separate them from their mother plants. You will have to do this several times until they are big enough to stand alone. Then, it’s time to repot your yuccas so that they grow into healthy trees or shrubs. You’ll want to keep these plants small so that they don’t compete with each other for light and water.
There are many ways to divide your yuccas, but here’s one method that works well for me. I use a piece of plastic sheeting (I got mine at Home Depot) to create a barrier between my pots and the ground. I then place two large pieces of wood across the bottom of the pot, making sure not all of the soil gets underneath them. Next, I put another piece of plastic over the top of the two boards.
Finally, I cover everything with dirt and plant some seeds in there.
If you’re like most gardeners, you probably have a few yuccas that aren’t quite ready to be separated yet. If this is the case, you might want to try something else next time…
How To Grow Yucca Plants Indoors Or Outdoors?
Does it matter whether you grow your yuccas indoors or outdoors?
Well, that all depends on where you live. If you happen to live in a warmer climate, then you’ll probably have success growing them outside. Just plant them in the ground and stand back! On the other hand, if you live some place a bit colder, then they’re probably better off as houseplants. Just keep these plants somewhere with bright indirect sunlight, and they should do fine.
One thing that most gardeners don’t know is that it’s necessary to fertilize yuccas. The best time to do this is in the early spring and again in the summer. Once a month should be sufficient.
