Euphorbia Medusa

Euphorbia medusa is commonly known as ‘Jellyfish head euphorbia’ and is one of the most common and easily grown medusoids. This winter-dormant plant is a low, spineless, and numerous branched succulent that grows up to 6-12 inches (15-30 cm) in height. It has its origin in South Africa and belongs to the Euphorbiaceae family.

Growth Rate

Euphorbia medusa grows quickly and has a fast growth rate.

Flowering

This succulent plant blooms in the mid-summer, with green flowers grouped at the ends of the stems.

Watering and Feeding

Water rarely in the summer season and keep completely dry in the winter. When it comes to watering, consider your Medusa’s head plant the same way you would any other succulent. Overwatering should therefore be avoided. It is recommended to fertilize your plant once a month during the spring and summer.

Soil

Euphorbias grow best in mineral soils but are adaptable to a wide range of soil types. A good drainage system is essential.

Hardiness

The best temperature for Euphorbia medusa is between 50 to 80° F (10 to 27° C). It has a frost tolerance of 0° C (32° F) and a hardiness zone of 9b to 11.

Light

This rare houseplant prefers partial shade. For better growth, these plants require a lot of bright but indirect light. It is necessary to avoid putting your succulents in direct sunlight, as this can result in burnt leaves.

Propagation

Medusa’s head is extremely simple to propagate as it can be propagated through arm cuttings. To propagate, take a cutting and let it dry for a few days. After that, plant the cutting and start caring for it.

Jellyfish Head Euphorbias are one-of-a-kind succulents that are a must-have if you enjoy both plants and Greek mythology. When planted indoors, Euphorbia medusa can be eye-catching showpieces.
