Welcome to the fascinating world of succulent treesIf you are looking for a stunning and unique addition to your plant collection, look no further than the Euphorbia ingens, more commonly known as the Chocolate Drop cactus, which is a striking plant that is native to Africa. In terms of growth form, the succulent species Euphorbia ingens cv. "CHOCOLATE DROP" is a cactus-like tree similar to Euphorbia ingens, but it is a cultivar of this species known as "Chocolate Drop". 

The name Chocolate Drop comes from the large, oval-shaped chocolate brown spine shields that line the margins of the 4-angled stems. This Chocolate Drop cactus is part of the Spurge family, which is one of the largest genera of flowering plants in the world. Spurges are similar to cacti in terms of their ability to withstand droughts and their overall shape, but they are not actually cacti. 

The Chocolate Drop is an impressively detailed plant, and the cocoa-brown spine shields that highlight the green branches give it a little extra allure. Spine shields are pinkish-rose when in the growing phase but turn to chocolate brown with maturity. They have simplified blooms with no petals, and it is their architecture that people most admire.  This plant is also called the Candelabra Tree because of its tree-like branching habit. It grows best in warm conditions and its active growth period is usually late spring and summer. Therefore, they are suitable for outdoor cultivation all year round in USDA zones 10 -11. Outside of these areas, growers can grow Euphorbia ingens 'Chocolate drop' year-round indoors or in pots so the plants can spend the winter indoors. 

This drought-tolerant plant is easy to care for and doesn't require much attention. The most important thing to remember when caring for a Euphorbia ingens 'Chocolate drop' is to make sure it gets enough sunlight and doesn't get overwatered. Use a well-drained soil mix with specialized succulents potting soil 

With its towering height and striking yellow flowers, this succulent tree is sure to be a conversation starter in any room or garden. But before you bring one home, it's important to know all about its care requirements and potential toxicity. 

With proper care, your Chocolate drop succulent tree plant will thrive and bring some extra personality to your space!
