Yucca Tree and baking soda I also have a Yucca tree from California. My problem is, I have a cat. My tree's were just great before he got into it. He used it for a litter box. I read somewhere to mix a little backing soda in water and pour it in. Well my boyfriend put the whole box in with it. I won't be able to transplant until summer now. The plant consists of 3 trees. They have minimal leaves now. I put in some new dirt with the esisting dirt and put some food in with it. I am just sick about it since my mom brought them home on her lap from California. I lost her a couple years ago, due to cancer and I have no one to ask what to do about this. Please help!!!
