The Q&A Archives: Adam's Needle Yucca

Question: I purchased an Adams Needle Yucca about 6 yrs. ago and it has only blossomed once. It's in the sun practically all day and I fertilize it every month the beginning of May thru the summer until the 1st of October. What do I need to do to have it blossom every year?
Thanks for your help.

Answer: You may be giving your yucca too much TLC. Feeding so often can result in lots of green growth but at the expense of flowering. Yucca plants thrive on lean soil kept on the dry side. Don't feed at all this year and see what happens. I think your plant will flower for you later this summer. Enjoy!
