Forum home The potting shed

wot to do now

Hi all ,this was a rescue plant when we moved here,I think its a Yucca of some kind and was in the rubbish bit, I replanted the larger one and the two smaller ones came,now its looking healthier and is a fairly strong grower i think the pot might be too small for three, So wot to do, wait till summer and split or do it now , or leave for a year or so i don't know ?

    Do Yuccas grow off a trunk?, it doesnt look like mine.

    Could it be some sort of Bromeliad?
