Yucca fell over

Asked October 13, 2015, 9:22 AM EDT

My yucca palm had some damage to the stem when I bought it. But was told it was fine. It's grown a few feet in the last 8 years. But it has fallin over and the bend is in the weak part of the truck. I wasn't sure if it would like if I just staked behind it and gave it strength that was. Or is there something else I can do. Thank you

Is it falling over because it is top heavy and the pot cannot support it or is the stem bending over because of the damage to the stem. it is a native plant in Mexico, likes bright light and kept slightly on the dry side. If you see any "pups" at the base of the plant,separate these and start a new plant.
