Euphorbia need more water than true cactus, as they grow faster and store less water. Still, allow this plant to dry well, even in lots of sun. Euphorbia also propagate easily! Cuttings can be made into new baby plants. Make sure to wash your hands thoroughly after handling Euphorbia, as the sap can cause skin irritation. Handle with care!
Native to Africa; the Euphorbia Trigona is also known as the African Milk Tree Cactus, Candelabra Cactus, Abyssinian Euphorbia, Cathedral Cactus, and Friendship Cactus. This plant is only known to be in human cultivation, and isn't found in the wild. Not many pests are known to live on Trigonas- the most common health problem they have is toppling over under their own weight!
