The tropics at home ? Yuccas are perfectly grown for that. The Yucca elephantipes is a western classic tough desert plant with a rough, striped stem and bright green leaves and 3 stems in 1 pot. Their ornamental evergreen, sword-shaped leaves and large panicles of white or creamy-white flowers in late summer and autumn.This desert plant tolerates heat and dry conditions well. Give the plant a bit of water only when the soil is dry to the touch. The Yucca does like light, but not strong, midday sun. They can be moved outside to a warm, sunny patio in summer - but make sure you bring them back indoors before the weather turns cold in early autumn.

Light: Bright, direct sunlight. Will tolerate some light shade; however, this will slow its growth and lighten the leaf colour.

Water: Allow the top of the soil to dry out before watering. In low light conditions, allow half of the soil to dry out first. Can cope with some degree of drought. Ensure there is adequate drainage and don't allow to sit in water.Water plant moderately from April to September but more sparingly when dormant (autumn and winter) - once or twice a month may be sufficient. Allow the soil to dry out slightly before watering again.

Temperature: Adaptable to pretty much any indoor room temperature.

Feed: An occasional weak feed if anything. 

Care Tip: Leaf tips are sharp so take care whilst handling.

Toxicity: toxic to pets

Origin: Southwestern United States, Mexico and Central America.
