Propagating Yucca


does any one know what the best method for propagating my Yucca trees would be? I watched a you tube video, but the guy was experimenting and i'm just not that brave. Thanks

I had good luck propagating Yucca cuttings that I picked up from a neighbor's curb-side heap.

I chose pieces that were roughly a foot to 18 inches long with a trunk diameter about the size of my thumb. I removed all of the foliage from the bottom halfs and allowed the cut ends to callus over. I simply plunged the stems (about 6" deep) into a pot of sterile potting mix and kept the mix moist ... all 6 pieces took root over the next several months.

Thanks guys I will try to get photos up soon, they are trees, and as far as i know the tags said Yucca. I did take one of the shoots off and followed a youtube video that I saw. dipped it in rooting hormone and now its in water. the video I watched had success photos over a course of 6-8 weeks I think, so I hope to see some roots by atleast the forth week. Mine have never bloomed, but I've only had one for 6 months and the other for 8 months, so maybe they just need to get familiar, or maybe its just not the right climate here???

I do hope to have some shoots to trade eventually, just need to know that propagation will be successful before I do anymore!

Hi Chy......
Step for propagating Yucca trees.

** Giving credit - the following was exerpted from the wikiHow site:
Originally Posted by wikiHow :
Method 1 of 4: Taking the Cutting
Take a cutting from a mature stem
Dry out the stem
Fill a small pot with loose soil.
Push the stem, cut side down, into the soil.
Let the pot sit in a location that receives indirect sunlight.
Transfer the yucca plant to your garden after roots develop.

Method 2 of 4: Preparing the Plot
Choose a location that receives full sun
Dig a hole that is roughly 3 feet by 3 feet (1 m by 1 m).
Build a wall of stones.
Fill the hole with granite stones.
Lay 2 inches (5 cm) of small gravel over the stones.
Pour 10 inches (25 cm) of soil over the gravel.
Top the soil with 2 inches (5 cm) of granite chippings.

Method 3 of 4: Planting
Plant your yucca during the late spring.
Dig a hole in the center of the bed.
Gently pry the yucca out of its pot.
Place the yucca into the newly dug hole.

Method 4 of 4: Care
Fertilize every two weeks during the summer.
Water sparingly.
Check your plant for pests.
Monitor the plant for marks of fungal disease.
Add a layer of mulch over the bed each winter.
