- In its native zone, this striking succulent can grow up to 8 feet in size, and forms shrubs where its brightly-coloured, branching stems are shown off to great effect
- Its Latin name is Euphorbia Tirucalli, and can be found listed as "Milk Bush", "Naked Ladies", "Indian Tree Spurge", or as a "Pencil Cactus"
- Keep in bright light (direct is best, but it can handle indirect light so long as it has access to a lot of it). The more bright, direct light it gets, the more pronounced its colours will become
- Water deeply when the soil is completely dry, allowing any excess to drain away
TOXIC WARNING: Not pet, child, or people-friendly! Broken tips will release a milky, sticky sap which will cause skin to burn and itch. Keep away from bare skin, eyes, and all mucous membranes.
