The Q&A Archives: Yucca Seed Germination

Question: What soil temperature is required for yucca seed germination and what is the length of germination required?

Answer: Yucca seeds have a hard outer coating so either soak the seeds in warm water for 24 hours, or nick the outer coating before planting the seeds.<br><br>They need heat to germinate, about 70F degrees, so find a source of constant heat, such as the top of the refrigerator, or on top of a heating cable used for seed starting. <br><br>Germination usually begins within 2 weeks, but it could take over two years for the process to be completed. Since these guys aren't in much of a hurry to sprout, hope you have a lot of patience! Once they've grown their first set of leaves, the heat can be turned off and they can be transplanted outdoors.
