Euphorbia platyclada is a fleshy succulent plant with weird flattened mottled red-brown stems from a raiseable heavy rootstock. The branches are very unique, with an irregular scab like texture, and look dead, or at the very least zombified. It grows up to 20 inches and it produces flowers at the stem tips. Flowers are a dull orange-gold or brownish, tiny, only 2 mm in diameter. The flowers almost blend into the dead-looking colour of the rest of the plant. And it blooms mostly at the end of summer.

Cultivation and Propagation: Euphorbia platyclada is an easy species to grow that is suited for a hot dry spot in the garden. But young plant are happy growing indoors in a decorative pot. Give the plant an airy growing medium which mainly consists of non organic material such us clay, pumice, lava grit, and only a little peat or leaf-mould. Water regularly during the active growing season from March to September. No water should ever be allowed to stand around the roots. Keep almost completely dry in winter. If plant becomes reddish, this is a sign that the roots have not developed properly. It is a relatively fast growing and 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. Like quite small pots, repott in very later winter, early spring. Can be pruned for shape and branching.
Frost tolerance: Frost tender, it can withstand temperatures only above 2º C.

Love it

Everything I have purchased from Planet Desert has been healthy and amazing. Very pleased with their products and they’re always packaged nicely so they don’t come broken and covered in dirt. By far my favorite online source for cacti and succulents.
