Care level

Easy care - suitable for beginners

 

Where should I put it?

A 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 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?

You can feed it a couple of times during spring and summer, we recommend our vegan, organic plant food.

 

Any other Euphorbia care tips?

Occasionally Euphorbia can suffer form 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.
