Some very basic tips for caring for a yucca elephantipes:

It usually has rosettes up to 25 cm wide and its height depends on the oscillation that can measure from 15cm to 1.2m in height.

Light and temperature
They need plenty of light to grow strong and healthy, and they appreciate the outdoors in summer. In winter they do not like excess heat, they prefer temperatures around 8-13Cº and in summer the room temperature.

They only usually bloom if you have them in a greenhouse.

During the winter once every 10 days it is left over and in the summer 2 to 3 times a week.

The yucca is cleaned with a damp cloth and rinse aid should never be used.

Liquid fertilizer should be added to the water every week during the summer months but with half the recommended dose.

Common problems

The leaves have gray mold.This is because cassava has botrytis. It is recommended that the plant be sprinkled with sulfur and that ventilation be improved.
The leaves start to turn yellow.This is because the plant is in a place with little light. It is recommended that the yucca be moved to a more illuminated place and cut the yellow leaves.
Cassava leaves and stems have brown insects.The plant has mealybugs. It is recommended that they be removed one by one with a cotton swab dipped in methyl alcohol and then sprayed with a systemic insecticide.

Other tips

The land of the yucca is number 2 marl.

In summer it is recommended to spray it with a nebulizer. When spraying, you should keep the fogger for approximately 15 cm.
