( This plant is grown in an 8" Pot )

Cultivation and propagation: Euphorbia esculenta is an easy species to grow that is suited for any well drained soil in full sun. It is cultivated as an ornamental, and is a particular favorite of succulent plant enthusiasts.

Growing rate: It is a relatively slow growing and long lived plant and once established, it will be content in its position and with its soil for years.

Soil and pots: It likes deep pot with generous drain holes to accommodate its tap root, needs a very airy potting medium very permeable to water which mainly consists of nonorganic material such us clay, pumice, lava grit, expanded slate and only a little peat or leaf-mould. Re-pot every two years.

Exposure: 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.

Watering: Water regularly during the active growing season. No water should ever be allowed to stand around the roots. Keep almost completely dry in winter. However this spurge will tolerate dryness and can even thrives in poor, dry soils, but do better when grown in nutrient-rich soils with regular watering.

Hardiness: Some cold tolerance. This spurge has tolerated temperatures down to -6º C and even a little snow. However, it can be difficult to get it to look its best without a good amount of heat and sun (USDA Zones 8-11)

Known hazards: As with all other Euphorbias when a plant get damaged it exudes a thick white milky sap known as latex. This latex is poisonous, and may irritate skin. Pay extreme attention not to get any in your eyes or mouth. Cultivated plants must be handled carefully.
