Blue-Stem Yucca love being close to bright, sunny windows 😎.
Place it less than 1ft from a south-facing window to ensure it receives enough light to survive during this time of reduced sunlight intensity in Memphis, Tennessee ⛅.
Blue-Stem Yucca does not tolerate low-light 🚫.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Blue-Stem Yucca after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Got this cutting from Walmart. I am planning to repot the plant into a 5 gallon fabric pot once daylight savings time begins. I make my own super soil with using OMRI Listed Organic Down To Earth Fertilizers:
Azomite (volcanic rock dust)
Feather Meal 12-0-0 (slow release Nitrogen)
Blood Meal (soluble Nitrogen)
Neem Seed Meal 6-1-2
Insect Frass 3-1-1
Langbeinite 0-0-22 (22% Sulfate of Potash Magnesium )
Bat Guano 7-3-1
Seabird Guano 0-11-0 (11% Phosphate, 20% Calcium)
This is the first plant I purchased over a year ago. It died a few times due to lack of sunlight. However, I was able to bring it back to life with lots of sunlight, daily chats and a tender touch. Just need to figure out why the tips of the leaves are browning 🤔…
this one has officially survived an Arizona summer outside (though pretty well shaded with only partial morning sun) and I am so proud of it! we had some scary times with spider webs and with dryness—including being blown over in a windstorm—but we have navigated it all beautifully with new growth coming in all the while.
This plant is my Frankenstein!
After a particularly bad cold snap it withered and rotted away.
But after a bit of TLC (the love, as well as liberal application of the hit 90’s pop group) it began sprouting, and is tearing to go (and thirsting after human brains - but that’s a minor setback)
This was a present a pal bought for me from Sainsbury’s for Christmas a couple of years ago. Back then it was barely 10cm, now it’s nearly 1m tall. Requires minimum care, only repotted once, lives in a shaded west facing window but absolutely rampant growth.
