Q.indoor yucca plants

vonnie added on March 9, 2012 | Answered

I have two well established yucca plants. I was just wondering if they can go outside underneath my pavillion in the warmer weather and bring them back indoors in the winter. Don’t want them to die. I water them once every two weeks. Is this right?

Yes, you can move the plant indoors for overwintering. Rather than watering on a schedule, check the top of the soil instead (poke finger into top inch of soil). If the top of the soil feels dry, your yucca needs to be watered. If the soil feels wet, it does not need to be watered. In winter, the plant will need less water, as indoor plants go dormant when the weather cools and only need monthly watering.
