Hi all, I have this Yucca style plant and it flowered last year. Beneath it there are 2 -3 young plants - can I pot them up or is it best to leave them where they are ? Any advice greatly appreciated. Thank you.
I would pot them up using a loam-based compost with lots of added horticultural grit.
Thanks I'll give one a try.
Are they seedlings or are they runners/suckers/offhoots?
I'm just interested, you can pot them up as Dove says whichever they are
Oh I'm not sure - didn't even give that a thought. Just assumed they were seedlings ! How would I know the difference ?
Seedlings will just have roots. The off-shoots will be joined to the parent below the soil.
Thank you - I'll investigate over the weekend. If it's an offshoot do I cut it off from where it is joined to the parent or from beneath the new plant ?
Cut it off as close to the parent plant as you can. You will probably need a breadsaw to do it.They are really tough.
Ok thanks. And pot up the whole offshoot ?
