Madagascar Jewel (aka Euphorbia Leuconeura)

  • Location:

    I am native to Madagascar
  • Looks:

    I have attractive, dark green foliage, with white veins when young
  • Height:

    I can grow up to 1.8 metre in height!
  • Environment:

    I prefer lightly shaded to part sunny places with some morning sun, evening sun and winter sun. Direct sunlight can cause my leaves to burn. I don’t like the temperature around me to be less than 15 degrees
  • Flowers:

    If placed warm I may produce small, white flowers that appear at the base of each leaf where the leaf joins the stem
  • Grooming:

    Remove my flowers as they fade
  • Life Span:

    I can last a really long time, if looked after properly. Plant me up each year into a bigger pot to see me grow
  • Feeding:

    Water me once a week during the growing season. In winter, water once or twice a month. Succulent food is an ideal food for me
  • Fact:

    For propagation I shoot my seeds several feet into the air! Be aware the seeds may land in nearby potted plants and begin to grow; they are easily removed and can be transplanted. I am a toxic plant, not to touch, but if my leaves or stems are damaged the sap can be an irritant
