The keys to success with grass trees are that they need very well drained, sandy soil to survive, and hate having their roots disturbed. This means you need to be really careful when transplanting them from a pot into the ground, preparing the site with plenty of sandy soil and small pebbles if your soil is not sandy to start with, and cutting the plant out of its pot to avoid damaging the roots.
