About Euphorbia ingens

The Euphorbia ingens, also called the candelabra tree, the cowboy cactus and the good luck cactus, is a spiny, succulent plant that features cactus-like, segmented arms growing from a single trunk, with bright yellow blossoms on the tips of its branches in late spring.

A native of the East Indies and Africa, euphorbia adapts well to life as a houseplant, and may be set out in summer and brought inside before the first hint of frost. However, this is an extremely poisonous plant, and the milky latex can cause blisters on skin and even blindness if it touches the eyes. It should only be grown where it is out of reach to both children and pets.

Planting and care

Select the proper container for your euphorbia. It can be plastic, fiberglass or terra cotta, but if you plan to move your euphorbia outside in the summer, you should choose acontainer that will not be too heavy. Make sure the container has ample holes at the bottom for drainage, as well as a saucer.

Provide your euphorbia with the proper growing medium. According to Cal s Plant of the Week, a soil mix consisting of one part peat moss, one part loam and two parts coarse sand is optimal. You can add some bits of small gravel to help with drainage; as a native of an arid environment, the euphorbia can t tolerate wet roots or soggy soil. Place the euphorbia plant in a location that receives bright, direct sunlight and stays consistently warm, between 74 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit. A south-facing window, with the euphorbia located no more than 2 feet from the glass, is ideal.

If possible, the room the euphorbia is in should have light-colored walls to more efficiently reflect light. Make sure the euphorbia is not placed near an air conditioning vent. Water your euphorbia every two weeks, letting the soil dry out completely between each watering. Water the plant thoroughly, so that water runs out the drainage holes. Empty the saucer afterwards to ensure that the euphorbia is not sitting in water.

In winter, when the plant is dormant, reduce watering to once a month. Feed your euphorbia in the spring when new growth begins. Use a water-soluble fertilizer in a 10-10-10 NPK formulation, diluted to half the recommended strength.

Don protective gloves and use a clean, sharp knife to take a cutting from your euphorbia to propagate it. Do this in the spring, Take the cutting from a branching point and hold the cut section under cold water to stem the flow of milky latex. Before planting, allow the cutting to dry out for two weeks to form a callus over the cut end.

Euphorbia ingens care

The plant perform best in big size containers (8inh or more) or plant them on ground

Sunlight Place the plant in a bright area of the home; a south or southeast facing window works great. If natural light is not adequate, you can supplement with a nice natural white florescent bulb. You can put it outside in summer and spring, with indirect light, but it will need to remain indoors during fall and winter.
Watering When the soil is dry it is time to water. If the plant gets too fleshy and starts to lean over, you need to water less often.
Soil Use a potting soil mix with a little sand; a cactus & suculents likes good drainage. You can mix in a little slow release organic fertilizer, but it is not necessary. Make sure to pack down the soil around the transplanted plant, and thoroughly water it, to help spur the rooting process in the new soil.
Temperature stays consistently warm, between 74 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit
Fertilizer Use a water-soluble fertilizer in a 10-10-10 NPK formulation, diluted to half the recommended strength.
