Projects and Ideas - Planting yuccas
Yucca plants grow really big if you do not maintain it and especially if planted on the ground. As most of my yuccas are, I plant them on pots. This way I get the chance to clean and remove unwanted leaves and I can control how big it becomes. Sometimes I run out of soil and pots so what I do I clean the yucca as clean as possible and then put it in water. Any plant put in water will grow. In this case, I used bottles and/or glass jars and/or vases with wide openings.
If I used a vase, I normally just put the vase on top of a sidetable. For this particular example, I placed the glass jars on a rattan planter. But be careful. If the planter is too wide, it might be a good idea to put it on top of a plate or a small bowl so the water does not spill. Also, put some brown paper on the sides to make sure the glass jar does not fall.
