Euphorbia Venenifica, also known as the Candle Plant or Cylindrical Euphorbia,  belongs to the Euphorbiaceae family. Native to Chad, Sudan, Ethiopia and Egypt, the plant can reach a maximum height of 16.4 feet. This is a cylindrical-shaped plant that goes dormant in winter.

Growth Rate

This plant has a nature where it spread wide. For it to do so, the Venenifica euphorbia growth rate is quite slow.

Flowering

Sometimes, the candle plant flowers  grow loosely in an irregular manner. With their blooming season in spring, the flowers are small, lime yellow, and green. 

Watering and Feeding

For candle plant care, water the succulent once a week during all seasons and it is best if small amounts of water are added from below. Feeding is not required for normal growth and development. 

Soil

Since Euphorbia Venenifica grows in a variety of soils, they can even thrive in nutrient-poor soils. All they require is for the soil to be well drained. 

Hardiness

This species is well adapted to high temperatures and can grow in a hardiness zone of 10a to 11b. It has a frost tolerance of -1.1°C.

Light

For proper development, direct sunlight for at least 6 to 8 hours is required. They need as much sunlight as possible but can tolerate partial shade too. 

Propagation

While the candle plant propagation can be done from seeds, these seeds are difficult to germinate and not viable for long. Use the most common method of propagation - cuttings. 

If you see that the succulent is having problems blossoming, this is likely due to a lack of water or sunlight. All you have to do is provide it with optimal conditions since that is crucial to flowering.
