What a sweetie you are to clarify my question. I am so glad to know this. Have a blessed and safe week.

tookieblueeyes says:

Could be very likely that they are because they have been imported and exported to a lot of places all over the country because they are a plant that flowers and looks good in some landscaping and they require very little water to survive so people with rock gardens or the like typically favor plants that don’t require much water to sustain life and continue flowering. But to tell for sure I would need to see a photo or something but I still wouldn’t doubt that is what you have.

I got some of these in my yard in Chicago. Are they the same plant?

C Eagleton says:

I just received my order of Yucca ( filamentosa) seeds. I lightly buried them with fresh earth. I watered them and have the pots sitting in a light room but not directly in the sun. Did I miss a step?? Does anyone know if they will grow like that? Thank you! : /

Fantastic. take care

No it wasn’t from one of the live plants. I couldn’t justify pulling up the root of a perfectly good and healthy plant if I wasn’t going to use it for something so I dug out the root of a long since dead plant and used it to show the viewers.

So do I. I love informative videos that teach people the little known facts about something that they already knew the basics about, but didn’t realize it’s full potential. I think everyone knows that it is an excellent material (the stalk) for use in making fire by friction, and I think it is pretty well known that it can be used as cordage in a pinch, but I delved a little deeper and found out all the little known things about it that I was sure not many people knew about.

tookieblueeyes says:

It does make a really awesome material for friction fire. It was actually the first material that I used when teaching myself how to make fire by friction and it worked like a charm. I thought I would fail the first few times I tried the technique but was very surprised and pleased that first time try it worked like a charm, as if I were a pro or something lol. Ever since then it has been my favorite material for making fire by friction.

The dead flower stem in from a yucca plant is one of the best friction fire material that you can find. The dead dry stem can be used as both drill and fireboard. Great info. Thanks for posting.
