You Will Need
- Yucca plant
- Saw or loppers
Remove the yucca from the soil
Remove the yucca from its container if it gets too tall. Pruning isn't necessary for outdoor yuccas, but you can use the same pruning method there as well.
Find the halfway mark on the trunk
Determine where the halfway mark is on the yucca's trunk.
Cut the trunk
Cut the trunk in half at your mark using a saw or a pair of loppers.
Replant the bottom half
Place the bottom, rooted portion of the plant back in the container, or in the ground if you are planting it outdoors.
Water the yucca
Water the yucca well, making sure it gets plenty of light while it is recovering. Before you know it, your plant will be producing new leaves and will be looking as healthy as ever.
