It is commonly known as Yuca pie de elefante, Izote, Yuca gigante and Yuca de interior. This Yucca is native to Mexico and Guatemala.

This plant has a woody stem that branches out and can reach a height of 10 metres; if grown indoors it does not usually grow more than 2 metres high. It produces long leaves (up to 1 metre) that are bright green, somewhat fleshy, thornless and ribbon-like.

Its flowers appear in large panicles and are bell-shaped and white or cream in colour. The petals of these flowers are edible.

Yucca is easy to grow and is used as an indoor and outdoor plant in climates such as the Mediterranean (in Barcelona it thrives well in parks and gardens).

This plant needs a full sun exposure outdoors and a well-lit with at least 3 hours of direct sun if grown indoors (take it outdoors in summer). Average annual temperatures would be 18-23 ºC.

It thrives in a mixture of peat, sand and leaf mould in equal parts. It can be transplanted in spring if the pot is too small.

It is advisable to water it abundantly in spring and summer and to reduce watering the rest of the year so that the soil does not dry out completely between waterings.

It should be fertilised with mineral fertiliser every 15 days during spring and summer.

It is very resistant to pests and diseases.

It is easily propagated from the side shoots that the plant itself produces.
