In Reply to: Yucca Hell!!! posted by Nicola Smith on March 02, 2003 at 10:12:06:
: I am not a very green fingered person and my parents have asked me to look after their Yucca plant whilst abroad..Over the last few weeks all leaves have turned brown/yellow which I have now removed (Hope that was the right thing to do). The plant is about 8ft and is touching the ceiling. The only leaves on the plant are at the top these look very heathly with new ones coming through. Can I put the plant outside?? I don't mind giving my parents back a bald yucca but not a dead one..Any advice
Gosh, sounds like quite a responsibility. They didn't leave you any instructions with the plant?
You ask if you can move it outside, but you don't say where you live. If you are in a frost free area and the temps are consistantly above 55*, then go ahead and put it outside, but make sure it's in the shade or the leaves will burn. Also make sure you check it daily for water as the outside air is different and may be dryer than the house.
