Coral Cactus Green

Euphorbia lactea

Regular price £24.00 £0.00

It might look like something you'd find on the sea floor, but as a succulent hybrid the Coral Cactus likes almost no water. This unearthly Euphorbia is rooted with a tough stem that gives way to a ridged fan, coloured green.

Growing pot size: 10.5cm

Overall height including growing pot: 25-30cm

Pets: Harmful to pets.

Useful to know:

Origin

South America.

Height/Growth

I can grow as high as 63cm but I won't get that high quickly!

Light

I like 3-5 hours of full sunlight a day.

Water

Water me very sparingly in Spring and Summer, and hardly at all in Winter. Do not let me sit in water.

Temperature

Average indoor temperatures should be fine for me, just keep me away from draughts.

Feeding

I'm not too hungry but I'd like a bit of fertiliser during Spring, my growing season.

Grooming

Wipe my leaves clean every few months to allow me to breath properly.

Care

Please be careful handling me as I contain latex which is an irritant.

Toxicity

Best keep me away from children and pets, because I am spikey.

Fact

My coral-crown is called a crest, and is the result of a rare mutation in Euphorbia lactea. 

Decorative pot sold separately.
