Watering

Allow the top inch of the soil to dry out between waterings. Water thoroughly, ensuring that excess water can drain freely from the pot to prevent waterlogging. Reduce watering frequency in the winter months when growth slows down.

Feeding

Feed the plant with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid over-fertilizing, as it can lead to excessive foliage growth with reduced overall plant health.

Humidity

Yucca elephantipes is adaptable to low humidity levels and can tolerate dry air. However, it may benefit from occasional misting or placing a shallow tray of water filled with pebbles beneath the plant to increase humidity around the foliage.

Toxic to Cats/Dogs/Children

Light Requirements

Provide bright, indirect light for optimal growth. Yucca elephantipes thrives in full sunlight but can tolerate partial shade. Indoors, place the plant near a sunny window where it can receive plenty of natural light.

Temperature

Maintain a warm environment with temperatures between 15-27°C. Yucca elephantipes can tolerate fluctuations in temperature but should be protected from cold drafts and temperature extremes.
