Coral cactus | 10.5cm | Houseplant

Euphorbia lactea 'Cristata'


The Coral Cactus is a Frankenstein of the plant world. It's actually two plants in one: the stem is one plant, and the 'flower' at the top is part of another plant in the same family that has been grafted onto it. The incredible thing is that this plant lives quite happily like this, and will grow and thrive in the right conditions. 

Take care when handling this plant, as the spines are sharp and the sap (known as latex) is toxic, so exercise extra caution if you have small humans or pets in the home.

Please note the coral cactus ranges in colour, it comes in a range of coral pink to green. 

Comes in a 10.5cm nursery pot, ceramic pot not included.
