Cultivating Yucca

I have just dug up some young Yucca plants, and would like some instruction in cultivating these plants. How long does it take for Yucca to make new roots, and how long should I water it daily until it can go on its own?

Hi [wayey] Welcome to the forum!

Do you have your yuccas in pots or in the ground? How long have you been watering them every day?

I've always found them to be extremely durable plants. I've even thrown one in my "pile" that I thought was dead,well needless to say it came back to life after a couple of weeks. Mine are in the ground and get watered by me twice a week,more if mother nature pitches in. Once established they are very drought tolerant.

I will be planting the Yuccas in the ground today, so they have not been watered yet. I know to water them until they are established, but can't find any info to tell me an approximate established time -- if there is one. We will be away from home this summer for about 2-3 mos., and don't know if Mother Nature will deliver much, if any, rain here in Far West Texas. Think they'll be okay?

I just wanted to say that hummingbirds love yucca plant blooms. I can remember watching them at my grandma's. I would love to have a few in my yard. I did see some at a garden center yesterday. I may have to go get a few! My mom has the coral yucca and they are really pretty.

Welcome to the forum Dulcevolce! Here is a link to a site on yuccas and other desert plants. It is a pdf file, but it's only 3 pages long. The information on transplanting and recovery time is on the 3rd page. Cactus, Agave, Yucca and Ocotillo
