Please note you may not receive the exact plant pictured, but one of a similar size and condition.

Spring/Summer Autumn/Winter
A few hours of morning or afternoon sun each day - watch out for scorched foliage at the hottest points of the day.
As much light as possible - winter sun is not as strong.
Water when the soil is completely dry, usually once or twice a month in the growing season.
Do not water at all when the plant goes dormant in the winter months.
Can tolerate average household temperatures and humidity.
Very sensitive to low temperatures - must be kept away from cold windowpanes and draughts.
Feed once a month or so in the growing season. Do not feed in autumn and winter.


Common Name:
 African Milk Tree

Scientific Name: Euphorbia trigona 'Rubra'

Family: Euphorbiaceae

Origin: Africa

Toxicity: Toxic to humans and animals.

Soil: Any cacti and succulent potting mix, or you can mix extra drainage materials into regular soil.

Repotting: It's best to repot at the beginning of Spring about once every two years.

Propagation: Stem cuttings can be taken in spring and rooted in damp soil - be careful though as the sap is a skin and eye irritant!

Common problems: Overwatering can easily lead to stem and root rot.

Care Tips: Aerated soil and a pot with good drainage holes is the best way to avoid rot!

Fun Fact: Their name comes from the milky sap that their stems produce when injured.

Please note these are general guidelines based on our experience with these plants - care should be altered based on individual home environments.
