Re: Yucca hybrid seeds

Tim I have always been amazed how some of you have created new yucca forms.
A lot of it began in Europe and the Western States and Im glad its being done with your skillful knowledge in this part of the country.
I do have a question , as easy as yuccas seem to spread without any human intervention, how is the best way to germinate seed and insure they will grow well ? Thank you

Hi Rob

Yucca seeds are easy. They can germ at 75F to 90F best. I like to start in a well draining soil mix which is 50/50 potting soil/sand or potting soil/perlite. Fill pot up with soil mix moisten soil by letting water drain through for a minute. Place seed on top of soil. Cover seed with 1/8" depth of sand. Keep at 75-90F for best results. You'll see green leaves popping up through the soil in 2 to 4 weeks. Very easy. If you cover the top with plastic, you don't need to water until they sprout. Remove cover when sprouting or they may rot out.
