Euphorbia monstrose

Having its origin in Africa, Euphorbia Monstrose is a mutation of the species Euphorbia Submammillaris. The succulent looks like a cactus because of the dense clustered small-sized stems. The ball-like shape of the green-colored stems bears five to seven ribs. It belongs to the Euphorbiaceae family. The winter-dormant clumping plant requires full sun exposure to keep multiplying.

Flowering

The blooming season is summer when tiny yellow-colored flowers adorn the stems supported by very short red stalks.

Watering and Feeding

The plant should be watered infrequently because too much water can rot the roots. Drought periods between two consecutive waterings work the best for this plant.

Soil

Euphorbia monstrose grows well in pots that are equipped with drainage holes. The ideal soil mix consists of well-draining succulent soil blended to about 50% with coarse sand and mineral grit like pumice.

Hardiness

The hardiness zone for Euphorbia monstrose is 11. This plant is frost tender and should be well protected from freezing temperatures. The frost tolerance temperature for the succulent is 10° C(50° F).

Light

The plant grows the best in a brightly lit location. If placed indoors, ensure to keep it on a window sill facing south or south-west direction. If placed outdoors, ensure that it gets full sun during the daytime.

Propagation

Euphorbia monstrose can be propagated easily from cuttings.

The short-stemmed mutated Euphorbia monstrose is unique and quirky. It is a must-have for succulent lovers. An ideal gift, this clumping plant is undemanding and looks cool when placed indoors or outdoors.
