How to transplant a yucca?

If you are the owner of a plant such as yucca, provide him with proper care. Watering and placement, spraying and transplanting will make the palm tree beautiful and bright green. If the yucca is provided with optimal conditions for growth, its leaves will reach up to 1 meter in length, and white flowers will appear on the leathery crown.

One of the main points in the care of the plant, is the question of how to transplant yucca. The first thing to remember is that the plant is fast growing. Therefore, it is worthwhile to watch how the yucca has grown, before transplanting. The size of the pot depends on it. On average, a transplant is recommended once every two years. It is better to pick up a plastic pot, since the ceramic will be difficult to carry and lift. When the plant reaches its maximum growth, it will not need to be transplanted often, you can purchase a ceramic container.

The plant is a yucca, which transplantation should take place only in the spring, is not very afraid of the cold. But do not immerse the plant in the winter or autumn months, because it hurts the further development of growth.Take a deep pot so that the plant is immersed in the third part of its trunk. It is necessary to make a drainage. Yucca must "breathe." If there is no drainage in the tank, make a few holes in the bottom of the pot (3-5). Put pebbles on the bottom, then sprinkle with charcoal (as an option - tablets of activated charcoal). Get a special blend for palm trees. The land should consist of 70% of peat, sand and fertilizer impurities. Immerse the plant in the soil (the pot should be half full), sprinkle it on top of the soil. Pour water into a saucer, place it under the pot. After a few months, it is better to put the palm tree on the balcony so that the root system can be ventilated through the drainage.
