The Yucca elephantipes usually doesn't have temperature problems during this time of year, because it can bear freezings although not too intense ones. Let's avoid exposing apartment plants to direct sunlight, which could damage the leaves, especially during the hottest months of the year. We should prefer a bright position, but with filtered light.For a balanced development, it is best to position the the Yucca elephantipes in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight.
Generalities Yucca elephantipes
The Yucca elephantipes is a succulent plant. This plant in the winter assumes a greenwhite colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 5 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The development of these plants is columnar, they grow aiming high with a scarce lateral development.
Fertilization Yucca elephantipes
In the spring letís use a fertilizer every 15-20 days, melting it in the water which we use to irrigate; we can choose a fertilizer for flowering plants or green plants, rich with nitrogen and potassium to favour a balanced development of the new vegetation. Otherwise we can, if we want to, use a slow release fertilizer, to add to the soil, every 3-4 months.
Watering Yucca elephantipes
We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 2-3 glasses of water every 1-2 weeks . To avoid that a scarce drainage could favour the development of fungal diseases, let's remember to avoid leaving water in the saucer.
Treatments Yucca elephantipes
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.
Soil Yucca elephantipes
These apartment plants favour very well drained soils.
