Hi!
My Yucca tree was repotted and it started dying - I'm pretty sure from being close to the heater and it accidentally got watered and misted a bunch by someone watching our house - anyways it started growing new leaves and doing better and then someone bumped into it and it fell down and ripped off its roots. It's dying again and it's not growing new roots and I have no idea what to do. Please help!

Welcome! to the forum kaitybird.

Is the stem soft at the bottom? Has the stem started to shrivel from the bottom up?

Considering the state of the plant it might be better to start over with something new. :sigh:I know it's your "baby" but take the lessons you've learned from this plant and apply them to another one that doesn't need so much remedial work. It's not quitting if you keep trying. Smiling

Hi CPPGardener,

Thanks for replying! :)
Yes, it is soft at the bottom. I'm assuming that's a sign of rot?

I guess it's lessons learned...
