Coral Cactus | Euphorbia Lactea Cristata

I might look like a come from the sea, but I am actually a succulent hybrid. My tough steam gives way to a prickly fan, coloured either green or pink.

Useful to know:

Origin

South America.

Height/Growth

I can grow as high as 63cm but I won't get that high quickly!

Light

I like 3-5 hours of full sunlight a day.

Water

Water me very sparingly in Spring and Summer, and hardly at all in Winter. Do not let me sit in water.

Temperature

Average indoor temperatures should be fine for me, just keep me away from draughts.

Feeding

I'm not too hungry but I'd like a bit of fertiliser during Spring, my growing season.

Grooming

Wipe my leaves clean every few months to allow me to breath properly.

Care

Please be careful handling me as I contain latex which is an irritant.

Toxicity

Best keep me away from children and pets, because I am spikey.

Fact

My coral-crown is called a crest, and is the result of a rare mutation in Euphorbia lactea. Click on the links to buy Coral Cactus Pink or Coral Cactus Green.
