Scientific name: Yucca Gigantea
Synonyms: Spineless Yucca, Dagger Plant, Adam’s Needle, Needle Palm

  • Super Low Maintenace
  • Loves bright indirect light
  • Waterwise
  • Attractive tabletop specimen
  • Will happily live on a Patio or Balcony

An attractive houseplant, Yucca has a crown of sword-like green leaves and sturdy trunk-like stems. A favourite indoor plant due to its low maintenance nature - preferring neglect to pampering any day of the week.

These Sentinel-like plants are often thought to be Palms, due to a rosette-forming growth habit that often resembles a Tropical Palm, however, have a much hardier nature. To thrive, they prefer being watered once their soil has completely dried, a win for being Waterwise, low humidity, and bright indirect light. Yuccas can also grow pretty large as they mature, but don't worry, they are extremely slow-growing, so it will be years before they reach the ceiling. Making their slow growth a positive for those who have limited space, but want something impactful.

Their Single stem creates a compelling assertion of a space, making them a fantastic tabletop icon. Place them as a contrasting piece alone or among other indoor plants in a bright spot of your home or office. Alternatively, they're content living on a sheltered balcony or patio out of the sun. 

Yucca is a great houseplant for anyone looking for a plant that serves as an instant focal point without fussing over its care.

Check out our Tabletop and Waterwise Plant collections for more options.

Make your Yucca standout in the crowd with these styling tips:

Follow these  Yucca care instructions to keep your houseplant happy & healthy.

  • Water: Allow the potting soil to completely dry out before watering again. Less is more with the Yucca as they often store excess water in their stems.
  • Light: Bright filtered light is recommended for this plant to look its best, avoid direct sunlight which can lead to scorch marks on the leaves and crisp leaf tips.
  • Humidity: No humidity adjustments are required, the drier the air the better.
  • Fertiliser: Feed with a quality liquid fertiliser or slow-release fertiliser once every month or so in the growing season of Spring through Summer. Avoid feeding in Winter.

Please note: Every part of the Yucca plant is considered toxic to pets and humans if consumed.
