African Milk Tree | Euphorbia Trigona 'Rubra'

My stems have three wing-like angles and carry short, sharp spines as well as leaves. Given the right conditions I can grow into an impressive tree.

Useful to know:

Origin

I am native to West Africa.

Height/Growth

won't grow too quickly, but I am capable of becoming as tall as nine feet!

Light

I like a lot of light, and will happily sit in direct sun, unlike a lot of other varieties.

Water

I can't take too much moisture, so wait until my soil is completely dry before watering me.

Temperature

I don't like the cold and should be kept above 13°C.

Feeding

Give me some feed once or twice during the warmer months. An all-purpose, or succulent-specific fertilizer will do the trick. 

Grooming

I don't need any pruning, but would like the occasional dust to maintain the beauty of my ruby leaves. Click here to buy African Milk Tree.

Care

As a tree, I can live for a very a long time so take good care of me.

Toxicity

Keep me away from pets and children.

Fact

Don't let my leaves mislead you, I'm actually a cactus!
