Euphorbia flanaganii is one of the most common and easily grown of the medusoids.
Growth rate: This is a relatively fast growing species, offsets readily, and can rapidly fill a large bowl with Medusoid plants.
Exposure: It like a sunny position, but 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.
Soil: It does best in a mineral soil, but is tolerant of a wide range of soil types. Good drainage is essential.
Watering: Water sparingly during the summer months and keep quite dry in winter.
Description: Euphorbia flanaganii is a low, spineless, many-branched, succulent to 5 cm tall and 30 cm wide. It is commonly known as Medusa plant, because its prostrate, snake like arms resemble locks of hairs.
