I have had a yucca plant for about a year now, that has gone through some tough times: it moved, then it suffered some cat bites, then a bug infestation. When the last thing happened to it, I moved it outside, since it was May. I carefully transplanted it, washing it's roots even more carefully, and it's lived through all of this trauma and is thriving again.
Now on to my real question. When I got the plant, there were two different plants growing from it. Does that make sense? Two stalks, I guess I mean. In May I realized that the plant had produced a small offshoot, and when I removed it was when I discovered the bugs. The smaller of the two original stalks did not survive. (The bugs were those millipede looking hairy things that we get a lot in the humid northeast, I'm not sure what they are.)
Now I have the larger plant and the offshoot planted separately. However, recently I got to wondering about yucca reproduction, and wondered how it produced the offshoot, if it needs a partner to produce another offshoot, and if I should put the offshoot back with the larger plant.* I would love it if the plant produced more offshoots! None of my container gardening books have any information on this, all they say is that the plant "may produce offshoots."
