The Euphorbia Trigona Rubra originates from West Africa and is easy to care for. It is known as the ’African Milk Tree’ because of the sap it produces, which can be very irritating on the skin!

It has lovely, thick green stems with red leaves and can grow tall even indoors if it’s cared for well. 

Plant size: D12cm H40cm

Looks good in our Spotted Pot, Seagrass Pots and Black Window Pots.

Plant care

Position 

Keep him in a bright spot, he will even take some direct sunlight but not too much. A  west or south facing spot will be the best.

Watering

Allow the soil to become dry to the touch between watering. Feed him once a month in the summer months. 

Temperature/Humidity

He doesn't like the cold nor draughts so make sure he's kept over 13 degrees. 

Toxicity

He's toxic to pets and humans because of the milky sap he produces. Do not let it come into contact with your skin.

Top Tip: If you repot him make sure to use our Cacti & Succulent Soil
