Q.Self-watering Pot And Yucca Cane Questions

Zone 23294 | Anonymous added on July 10, 2021 | Answered

I recently purchased a Yucca Cane plant, while the only pot available during my purchase was a self-watering pot (since it’s quartine times and everyone is getting interested in being plant parents.) Is it ok for me to keep my Yucca Plant in there and what measures can I take to make sure the roots don’t rot and my plant continues to grow? I know I shouldn’t let the plant sit in the water for a long time, so would it be better if I were to dump out the water or… I just need some knowledge placed in my tiny brain! I am very new and only getting started to become “plant mom” so I just want tips and more knowledge to make sure my plant doesn’t die on me. Please let me know all tips possible for me to be able to keep my Yucca plant alive. Please and thank you!

That container will be fine, if you use that reservoir more like a drip pan. After watering, normally, just dump out any water that collects.

Here is an article that will help you to care for this plant:
