I'm fixated with this 'architectural' plant.

They are selling everywhere including ikea but I'm looking for a 3-4 ft, and not the biggies.

Anyone has success keeping them indoor next to a window (but no direct sun)?

Easy, very hardy, pest-free plant and drought resistant. They are dessert plants and thus the main requirement is for enought light.
Next to windows will do.. but take care when positioning the pot. Normally Yucca are sold in trio.. the tallest one will probably get enought light from the window but the shortest one might not.
Try WF, more choices and much cheaper there.
You might want to look at Draco.. rather similar requirements but different 'architectural'.


Regards

Agree. Good choices and pricing at WF.

Bought a Yucca "3-in-1" trio type but the other (those in picture above) looks very tempting .. only if I have the space.

Draco looks less neat than Yucca - and I bought a "tree shape" 5ft Dracaena Marginata instead.

Thanks for the feedback and suggestions.

Hi all..

I used to have a yucca.. and my friend and I are still crazy abt them
But a word of caution.. they do have very sharp-pointed ends.. so u might want tobe careful if u have kids who likes to run ard.

Stash them in a quite corner (the yucca, not the kids).. and it should be okay..

This is wonderful.. tink I'll go get another yucca to grw indoors.. tks!!

Lots of Yucca ("3in1") at Ikea/Tampines. Very good price too ( .. not sure about transport though).
