Unless your thumb is greener than the usual shamrock on St. Patrick’s Day, you probably develop most of your backyard plants from nursery transplants. There’s, though, a fulfillment within growing crops from seed, not to mention the cash you’ll conserve. Hesperaloe parviflora — better-known as red yucca — is a succulent developed in Sunset’s Environment Zones 7 through 16, 18 through 31, and 33 through 35. It’s going to take several years to bloom despite the fact that it’s an easy plant to propagate from seed.

Examine your seeds and choose the types which are firm and plump.

Seed flats which are at least 4″ deep using a quality, well-draining potting soil. Soil mixes perform nicely.

Set the flat in tub or a tray and allow the soil hydrate in the bottom up.

Sow the seeds just beneath the soil, putting three or two seeds in the middle of every seed compartment.

Place the tray in-doors in a warm location, preferably between 72 and 90-degrees Fahrenheit. Keep the soil moist and anticipate your yucca seeds to germinate in one to 3 months.
