Euphorbia Trigona Rubra Succulent House Plant 6cm Pot
Euphorbia trigona rubra, also known as the African Milk Tree, is a succulent plant that is native to tropical regions of Africa. Here are some care tips to help you keep your Euphorbia trigona rubra healthy:
Light: Euphorbia trigona rubra prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves. It can also tolerate lower light conditions, but this may result in slower growth.
Water: Allow the soil to dry out completely before watering. Euphorbia trigona rubra is drought-tolerant and can handle periods of dryness. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's important not to water too frequently.
Temperature: Euphorbia trigona rubra prefers temperatures between 60-80°F (15-26°C) and does not tolerate cold drafts or sudden temperature changes.
Soil: Use a well-draining soil mix, such as a cactus or succulent soil mix. This will prevent water from sitting around the roots and causing rot.
Fertilizer: Feed your Euphorbia trigona rubra with a balanced liquid fertilizer once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Follow the manufacturer's instructions for dosage.
Pruning: Prune your Euphorbia trigona rubra to remove any yellowing or damaged stems. Wear gloves when handling the plant, as the sap can be toxic and irritate the skin and eyes.
Propagation: Euphorbia trigona rubra can be propagated by stem cuttings. Allow the cuttings to dry out for a few days before planting them in well-draining soil. Keep the soil slightly moist until the cuttings have rooted.
By following these tips, you can help your Euphorbia trigona rubra thrive and add a touch of exotic beauty to your home.
