    In the palm family, I never have luck with them! Good luck! Gently prop it up to keep it straight.

    It looks like a Ponytail Palm. It's in the succulent family! Looks like it could use a stake to hold it up. :)

    Good luck

      Try to gently tie it to a stake. Every couple of days, tie it a little tighter. If you think it's going to snap, let it go for a few days and try again. Repeat this until you train it to stand up. Also, face it away from the sun. It will try to reach for it and that may help the process also. Hope this helps!

    That is one very sad looking Yucca or Mass Cane you have there. I am thankful it now has a loving home. Both like bright, indirect light and require deep watering when the top few inches of soil are dry. If the plant decides to grow new shoots out of the bend, you can lop off the ones that are falling over and root them in water to make more plants. Thank you for caring!

      They have new shoots at the bottom. Should I up-root them & put them in water to root

    Not a yucca, they have very thick stems, and groups of fronds that look like individual plants growing from it. Maybe a variety of Madagascar Dragon Tree. Their stems tend to do that bending thing

    Don't know what it is but I had one for a long time. I agree with the post above on the indirect light. It almost died when I put it outside in the direct Arizona sun. Of course, nothing survives the direct Arizona sun. I put it in a shady corner and it came back. It doesn't like too much water and survived drought conditions. Good Luck.

    it's a dracaena. Cut it hard to main stem and it will shoot again. Repot the cut stems and they will root fairly quickly. 3 plants from 1

    Yukka Plant. Pretty easy. Use a stick or tomato plant stick to prop up the main stem that is hanging over. Easy to care for. Water well every week. Mine is taking over my office at home. Broken brances can be put in Water, then when roots appear, replant in pot.

    It's not a Yucca, it's a Dracaena.
