Euphorbia decaryi var. decaryi
Euphorbia decaryi var. decaryi

Description: E. decaryi is a small, leafy succulent with a shrub-like development. It is a mat-forming species and spreads almost horizontally on the ground by means of rhizomes.

The Euphorbia decaryi growth form illustrates the typical horizontal habit of most Madagascan euphorbias.

Flowers: Beige, bell-shaped.

Cultivation: E. decaryi is one of those plants that turn out to be difficult if treated as a difficult plant and kept too dry. They are indeed easy to cultivate although slow growing. In the heat of summer, the plant needs a good amount of water. Even in winter its soil should never completely dry out. Though it tolerates a dry over-wintering, it then gets in trouble in spring when it has to produce new roots. These plants don't seem to love being blasted by the sun in the summer but prefer bright light, and will therefore not make demands on your prime growing space.

The ideal temperature in summer is about 25°C; in winter above 15°C. They can grow both in pots and in the ground in areas with mild climate, but they can even be grown indoors. Reported as cold sensitive they can indeed survive outdoors, where they proved to be able to take some light frost with minimal damage.

Use a very draining loose compost, and place the plant in a wide flat bowl. If the plant remains dormant after repotting, you can rouse it with a shock
