During the spring the The Chaparral yucca can't stand the cold weather; should the climate be particularly harsh, with minimum night-time temperatures some degrees below zero, let's cover our plant with non-woven fabric. 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 of the The Chaparral yucca it is advisable to locate it in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight.
Care Chaparral yucca
The Chaparral yucca develops like a shrub. This plant in the summer assumes a white colouring; it is small in size and can reach 1,5 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.
Feed Chaparral yucca
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.
Irrigation Chaparral yucca
Letís water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 2-3 glasses of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 1-2 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy. To avoid that a scarce drainage could favour the development of fungal diseases, let's remember to avoid leaving water in the saucer.
Adversity Chaparral yucca
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.
Substrate Chaparral yucca
These apartment plants favour very well drained soils.
