Plant Bio

Euphorbia meloformis Variegata

This quirky and hard-to-find succulent hails from South Africa, where the species was first discovered back in the 1780s. While it’s not technically a Cactus, it certainly looks like one. Variegated Euphorbia meloformis is actually more closely related to Poinsettias and Crown of Thorns than it is a true cactus.

Like other succulents, though, it does like lots and lots of light indoors. Keep it within 2 to 3 feet of an unobstructed south-, west-, or east-facing window for best results. If you don’t have a bright window, plant lights will do just fine.

It also has low water needs and can tolerate drought. Water just before the potting mix dries out. If you’re not sure if it needs water, one way to check is to insert a wood toothpick in the drainage hole in the pot. Leave it in place for a minute or two, then pull it out. If the toothpick comes out clean, it’s probably time to water. If the toothpick comes out with potting mix adhering to it, then you can probably hold off watering.

Note: This plant may have some natural degree of toxicity and may cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Additionally, exposure to the sap of this plant may cause discomfort to individuals with a sensitivity to it upon contact. Grown for ornamental purposes and not intended for human or animal consumption.
