Yucca Plant Care

Yucca Plant Care

Spineless yucca plants are easy to grow indoors, and won’t poke you with painful needles like their outdoor relatives.

When you need a houseplant with height to add to indoor plant groupings, a spineless yucca plant may be just the thing you’re looking for.

These tough-as-nails specimens are normally potted in groupings of three to five canes that are topped with blue-green foliage for a palm tree-like effect, but without the drama. Also called stick yuccas or yucca cane plants, they thrive in average indoor growing conditions, with few pest problems.

Yucca plants are known for their tough, evergreen, sword-shaped leaves and large spikes of white flowers.

The group includes 40 to 50 species of perennial shrubs and small trees that are native to hot, dry areas of North and South America and the Caribbean.

Only one, Yucca elephantipes, is truly suitable for use as a houseplant, thanks to its spineless foliage, manageable size, and compatibility with indoor growing conditions.

Yelephantipes, also known as spineless yucca or Y. guatemalensis, is a native of Mexico and probably the tallest of all yuccas.
