Q.My Indoor Yucca Plant Is Yellowing and Droopy

Zone 4 | fjgreen added on October 14, 2012 | Answered

It has 4 stalks and only one is yellow and droopy. Is it dying? Also, it has little pokey things on the stalks. Are these suckers that I can cut off and transplant?

Yes, you can replant the pups growing from the plant. This article should help with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/foliage/yucca/separating-and-repotting-yucca-offshoot-pups.htm

As for the yellowing and drooping, I would say it's likely been overwatered, which leads to rotting of the roots. These plants only need watering when the top inch or so of soil is dry. Check the soil for moisture. This article will help determine if root rot has set in: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/disease/treating-root-rot-gardening-tips-for-housplants.htm
