Euphorbia Fasciculata Schoenlandii

(You will receive a very similar plant to the one in the picture. It may or may not be blooming at the time of your purchase. This plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).

Origin and Habitat: Est cape, South Africa (fairly close to the South African west coast mainly on the Sand Veld the area right along the coast.)Habitat: It is grows in open fields often on beach sand far enough from the present shoreline to support plant growth. The climate is characterized by winter rain and fog and summer drought.

Description: Euphorbia fasciculata is a small pickle shaped succulent srublet with prominent spiny tubercles, sometimes resembling a green pineapple, usually single stemmed but may branch with age.Stem: Up to 20 cm thick and 100 (-130) cm tall, upright growing and club-shaped with large conical tubercles up to 12 mm long.

Spines: 2,5-5 cm long (but occasionally up to 15 cm in the so called "fasciculata" type), the “spines” are only the stout, woody, withered remains of fertile peduncles which endure.Flowers: Cyathia (8 mm Ø) solitary or in simple cymes, arising above the spines, peduncles up to 2,5 cm long with a few 2-3 cm long scattered and deciduous bracts. Nectar glans oblong, margin with 3 to 8 entire or bifid linear, separated, processes up to 1,5 mm long.

Fruits: Globose to sub-globose up to 6 mm wide, sub-sessile.

Cultivation and Propagation: Like a sunny position. It does best in a mineral soil, good drainage is essential. Water sparingly during the summer months and keep dry in winter. It is a slow growing long lived plant and once established, it will be content in its position and with its soil for years. 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.

Propagation: It is propagated from seed sown during spring or summer. Germination occurs within 3 weeks, but it can be reproduced by cuttings as well (if available).

Flowering can be achieved within 5-8 years.
