Mine never stood a chance with me........ :lol: :lol:

I might buy one as flowers are wasted this year and could be worse rain next year.

I also want a Yucca.

Good luck Julia!

Looks very leggy where its been grown in close proximity to its clones, probably why the pots so deep and narrow. Can just about make out the markings on the leaf
my name is flounder, but you can call me.............flounder! (or Gary, just don't call me late for dinner)

Kata, why are you starting topics in a public forum titled with a members name? Please title it about the plant in question, or put it in a non public forum :wink:
Best regards
Dave

Sorry Dave,

I changed the topic title but left out 'Red tiger' as someone else also wrote that as a title. This was only about pot size for the member.
