Euphorbia ferox

$8.00

The Euphorbia ferox is a species of succulent closely related to Euphorbia pulvinata and Euphorbia aggregata, which all have striking forms. This plant has a branching green body and large red thorns which can be pink/red/purple/grey in colour. This plant, like many Euphorbias, gives an interesting appearance of being a cactus, though it is technically a succulent, and often displays small green leaves alongside its spines.

Being a Euphorbia, this plant has a toxic sap which should be avoided completely by the use of safety gloves and eyewear when dealing with this plant.

Like most succulents, the Euphorbia ferox grows best in a gritty, well-draining mix which allows it's roots to dry in-between watering. This plant prefers to grow in partial shade, where it can get all the benefits of bright light without being scorched.

Despite its appearance, this plant is not technically a cactus but rather a Euphorbia, a type of succulent.
