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.

I bought my plant yesterday and left it overnight. It did not have any pink worm-looking things yesterday.
Those are aerial roots. You can prevent them by lowering the humidity in your house, and watering less often.

Good morning! I love your yucca photo in https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/foliage/yucca/yucca-care-after-blooming.htm Would it be alright if I used that yucca photo on my business Facebook and website pages? It would be for esthetic only. I tried to submit this through the contract email page but it kept rejecting my captcha. Thank you for your time!

Live in Columbus, Ohio (cold winters) I purchased 2 large (4 gallon) color guard Yucca plants in the spring. Kept them in th house until June because temps stayed below 42, both plants bloomed in the house Unfortunately I have not yet planted them in containers or in the ground. Is it too late to plant them now? What do you recommend.
If you still have about six weeks till the first freeze, you can plant them now. If not, I suggest waiting till spring. You can keep them inside in a cool, frost free area and water sparingly over the winter, about once a month.
Yucca has formed these symmetrical spots ruining the leaves and it’s spreading. These spots are forming holes
These articles may pinpoint the problem. It could be fungal leaf spots. Have you tried Neem oil?
The yucca is in a conservatory and was doing well, but after watering from the bottom (not too much water) the leaves on the three large pups on the main stem died off within 2 weeks. They had been growing with an irregular shape (narrow, especially at the base) for some time.
Pups usually grow from the base of the yucca, so I suspect they weren't getting enough moisture. Here are the cultural needs of yucca plants:
After cutting down and putting Roundup or similar into drilled holes how long before you can consider tree to be dead?
Once the stumps are dead, they should easily give way and be easy to cut out. The time involved depends on the size of the stump, type of tree, amount of moisture, time of year, and other environmental factors. However, a glyphosate label reported the product would kill the stump in two to four weeks.
