Q.Is My Yucca Plant Dead?

Anonymous added on March 22, 2011 | Answered

My children and dog were having a little too much fun and have snapped off my leaves from my yucca plant. It is only about a foot tall, a few years old, and had three sprigs of leaves; but it is now just a stem in a pot. Have they killed it off or canĀ I do something to help it?

Yuccas are pretty hardy. I would be willing to bet that it will come back. It will either grow new leaves on the stem or send up a pup from the roots. Keep caring for it as you have and there is a good chance it will recover.
