Q.Why Is My Yucca Plant Tall But Skinny

Zone TN28 8XS Kent | CharlieB added on June 15, 2020 | Answered

I have a yucca plant that is about 70cm tall but is only approx. 5cm diameter at the base of the stalk. It is all leaves and keeps growing upwards but the stem doesn’t thicken up. It is in danger of falling over soon!
