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 in nursery pot:
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.
Allow the soil to become dry to the touch between watering. Feed him once a month in the summer months.
He doesn't like the cold nor draughts so make sure he's kept over 13 degrees.
He's toxic to pets and humans because of the milky sap he produces. Do not let it come into contact with your skin.
