Euphorbia plants prefer a spot in full sun. However, they are known to tolerate lower light conditions than cactus.
Use a sharp, well-drained potting soil such as a Cactus specific mix. Your soil should take up water, but drain and dry quickly.
Thoroughly water when soil is almost completely dry. Water well, let drain, let dry in between watering, repeat.
Fertilize with a cactus specific fertilizer each time you water during active growth. Reduce fertilization to once per month during fall and winter months.
tips and troubleshooting
Euphorbia stems are filled with latex sap that can be irritating and harmful when contact is made. Take caution with young children and pets.
