New growth on yucca dying

imageimageimage

My new yucca seems really happy in a sunny position right next to a floor to ceiling glass window, so much so it's sprouting new growth all over the place. The only problem is when that new growth starts growing the leaves curl up, go crispy at the edges and soon die. The plant as it was when I bought it all seems fine but the new growth just dies off. I've also notices that the new leaves carry like a white powdery substance on  their surface. I considered some kind of infestation but it doesn't look like anything I recognise as being like a bug infestation. Could it be fungi? I'm enclosing photos. Thanks so much for your advice! imageimage

  • Hi my healthy yucca keeps trying to produce 4 new shoots at the top of the trunk and they keep dying too. I really want these shoots to grow so that i will have 6 plants on 1 trunk but can't find any help or information at all. Have you solved the problem? If you have, could you please offer me some tips thanks

  • Which "yucca" are you growing - some are hardy outside and will flower prolifically depending on your location.  If your Yucca has flowered, then it can lose the centre where the flower spikes emerged but will produce new growth from the base.

    ID the type you have first of all and then ensure you are keeping them in their optimum conditions whether outdoors or indoors.
