You have to cut in between the mother plant and the baby, but make sure you get a bit of root with it. Yucca's are terribly strong and I once had one growing outside the fence and I wanted to get rid of it. Do you think I succeeded? No way, I even tried diesel oil, but it kept coming up. It makes runners I think and they pop up everywhere. Call me mean, but I hate things which bite, scratch, cut or itch in the garden!

I got a knife about a week ago and sliced down inbetween the plant and the offshoot and potted it up. It's doing fine.
Fingers crossed.
