|Euphorbia schoenlandii come from Port Elizabeth - South Africa. Euphorbia schoenlandii is a small pickle shaped succulent shrublet with prominent spiny tubercles, sometimes resembling a green pineapple, usually single stemmed but may branch with age. Stem: Up to 20 cm thick and 100(-130) cm tall, upright growing and club-shaped with large conical tubercles up to 12 mm long. Spines: 2,5-5 cm long, the “spines” are only the stout, woody, withered remains of fertile peduncles which endure. Cultivation: Like a sunny position. It does best in a mineral soil, good drainage is essential. Water sparingly during the summer months and keep dry in winter. It is a slow growing long lived plant and once established, it will be content in its position and with its soil for years. It can tolerate moderate shade, and a plant that has been growing in shade should be slowly hardened off before placing it in full sun as the plant will be severely scorched if moved too suddenly from shade into sun.Propagation: It is propagated from seed sown during spring or summer. Germination occurs within 3 weeks, but it can be reproduced by cuttings as well (if available). Flowering can be achieved within 5-8 years.|
