Othonna euphorbioides

Othonna euphorbioides is a remarkable caudiciforms species with the habit of a miniature spiny succulent shrub, broader than tall barely 10-15(-30) cm tall. It is the most cactus-like of all succulent Compositae (near Senecio) forming spiny masses of succulent stems seemingly remote from the better known Othonnas. This plant acquired its name by resembling many of the spiny succulent euphorbias.

O. euphorbioides is one of the easier species to cultivate. They must be grown very hard in the nursery as close to the natural conditions as possible. This ensures that they keep their compact habit.

It was ok

Although I understand that each plant is different, the description of the plant we will be receiving is misleading since it states “You will receive a similar plant in size and shape to the ones in the pictures”. The plant that I received looks nothing like it.

Othonna euphorboiodes

It's a bit smaller than I expected, but it came through the extended time in transit due to the unrest and destruction of our post office. The packing you did was awesome and is probably the reason the plant survived; lots of mail was strewn around and this box was undamaged. I got the note saying "no leaves 'do' (=due) to dormancy", which was thoughtful. In future, I hope you don't send packages the Friday before a long holiday weekend, but in the end, the plant survived. I hope to do business with your company again, after things calm down a bit.
