Yucca Palm prefers a spot with bright light, but tolerates low-light conditions well. In low light, it grows more slowly and requires less frequent watering. Water yucca cane when the top inch or so of the soil starts to dry out. In extremely dry air, the leaf tips may turn brown; trim off the edges to keep the plant looking fresh. Prevent this if your home's air is dry by adding more moisture to the air with a small humidifier near the plant. Yucca cane does best when fertilized once or twice a year. The best time to fertilize is in spring and summer, when the days are longer and the plant is actively growing. You can fertilize more frequently if you wish; use a fertilizer formulated for use on houseplants and follow the instructions on the product packaging. Yucca cane is not intended for human or animal consumption.
