Euphorbia (Red) - Plant
Bloom time: Summer.
Difficulty level: Easy to grow.
Planting & Care
Sunlight: Full sun.
Soil: Well-drained soil. You can do well with a commercial potting mix designed for cacti and succulents. For additional drainage, gravel or pumice can be added.
Water: Water Euphorbias during the warmer months about once a week when they are growing and only once a month during the cool months to maintain healthy roots.
Temprature: Grows best with average room temperatures 60-75°F/16-24°C.
Fertilizer: add some organic fertilizer to the planting hole. Don’t overdo the application of fertilizer, it should only be light.
- Also, avoid placing the plant in an area with direct sunlight before the plant establishes a mature root system.
- It is advisable to wear gloves when taking euphorbia cuttings because the latex can cause skin irritation.
- Whether you want a giant thornless cactus specimen 6 feet tall or a creeping, sweetly flowering ground cover, you should try growing Euphorbias.
- They reward the gardener with more than just good looks, but remind us all of the variety and beauty found in nature.
