(aka Euphorbia neriifolia/Euphorbia lactea )
I originate in Africa.
My Euphorbia neriifolia stem is straight and thorny but I have an extravegant, fan-like, Euphorbia lactea crest on the top.
I am approximately 30cm in my growing pot.
I like 3-5 hours of sunlight a day, and please turn me occassionally otherwise I will grow lopsided.
I am unlikely to flower, but who needs flowers when I look like this.
Please be careful handling me as I contain latex which is an irritant. Ideally wear gloves. I am not pet safe.
I can live a long time, older plants are more likely to flower.
Water me sparingly in Spring and Summer, and hardly at all in Winter. Do not let me sit in water.
This is a cactus that isn't really a cactus at all. It is actually a Euphorbia neriifolia base with grafted Euphorbia lactea crest.
