Q.I Have Many Yucca Plants in Backyard Pots

berta added on August 23, 2012 | Answered

All of a sudden several of them have started to lose leaves and have turned black in the center. It has been real hot and I have been watering them daily but since this started I have slowed down on the watering. Help, because I don’t want to lose them! All of them have several groups in them and not all are doing this. . . . Thanks.

It may have root rot. Root rot is normally caused by over watering. Yucca plants only need watering once the soil has dried.
