Soaptree Yuccas are are easy and fun to grow. Instructions: push a seed vertically down into a paper cup of good potting soil, to a depth of 1/4" Make sure the bottom of the cup has good drainage holes. Place the cup in good indirect light, and water the seed liberally once a day. After a week's time, the root should begin to push the seed out of the ground. Just leave it alone. When the spear-leaves are 3" tall, repot into something larger, cut the watering down to once every three days, and give it direct sun for a few hours a day. When the spear-leaves are many and long, plant in the ground.
