|Euphorbia tirucalli, native to arid South Africa, grows very rapidly, branching readily to form large stands. This plant will become a strking specimen in time. Known as the "Pencil Plant" for the curious pencil-shaped stems which at times have tiny leaves present at the growing tips. Responds well to warmth, with its active growth period in the late spring and summer months. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch during active growing season. Requires bright light to full sun for best appearance, and should be given a winter resting period at which time less water should be given. Protect from frost.

Avoid touching face and eyes while handling Euphorbias. ...|
