MIXED VARIETIES

The Yucca variegata is shrub-type plant part of the Agavaceae family, in its case native to the United States. Close cousin to the agaves and well adapted to desert conditions, it evolves quite easily indoors in our climate.

The Yucca variegata produces a dense cluster of persistent and rigid leaves. It will develop into a trunk over the years. The edges of its blue-green leaves are white. An upmost addition to your cacti and succulent collection!

MAINTENANCE

To be happy inside, the Yucca variegata requires very good indirect light, even direct sun during winter. It will need to be watered when its soil is completely dry from top to bottom, which could correspond to every 2 to 4 weeks depending on the season and the humidity level of the room. Here is a little tip to determine if it is the case: delicately insert a thin wooden stick all the way down to the bottom of the pot. If the stick is wet or damp as you pull it out, your Yucca variegata does not need a drink just yet!

When you take possession of your plant, make sure you assess its watering needs. Before you give it a drink the first time, check the soil’s moisture level to verify whether or not it is moist near the surface. It is best to aerate the soil before the initial watering since it is often compacted to avoid shifting during transit. This also allows it to breathe and release moisture.

Rotate your plant periodically in order to encourage an even growth. Cleaning the leaves regularly will stimulate proper photosynthesis. As you wipe the foliage, inspect the leaves on either side to make sure there are no pests.
