Variegated Euphorbia Eritrea Care level

Easy care - suitable for beginners

Where should I put it?

South or east-facing window will be ideal for most cacti. However, if the cactus starts to look yellowed, bleached, or orangey, it is likely getting too much light, and you should move it to a west-facing window. 

How much water does it need? 

Unlike most succulents, Euphorbia Eritrea does not handle long periods of drought well.

It may need weekly watering during the summer. Pot in fast draining sand and soil mix with drainage holes at the bottom. Water when completely dried out, drench until water comes out of the bottom then leave to dry again. 

Does it need feeding?

Yes, once a month through the summer or March through September.

When developing our original Happy Houseplants’ Vegan Cactus & Succulent Food, we decided not to tinker with it too much, so you'll find no chemical supplements in this 100% cruelty-free vegan product. Our organic original Vegan Cactus & Succulent food is made from Seaweed harvested sustainably.

Seaweed provides a delicate blend of growth hormones and micronutrients that is perfect for all indoor plants. Houseplants grow throughout spring, summer and autumn, so they will benefit from organic fertiliser during this time to encourage flowering and keep them healthy and well. Check out our full houseplant food range here

Any other Euphorbia care tips?

Occasionally Euphorbia can suffer from aphids or spider mites. The best thing to do in this case is to wash down the plant with soapy water, this may be enough to get rid of the pests.

You may also need to repot this plant to give the roots space to grow.
