Variegated Corn Cob Cactus

Size
  •  Euphorbia mammillaris variegata, also known as Indian Corn Cob, is a fast-growing shrublet with thick stems that are chalky green, erect and ribbed. These stems can turn rosy pink in colder weather.

     At maturity, the plant can reach 8-10 inches (20-35 cm) tall. Each stem can have from 7 to 17 ribs with thick hexagonal tubercles placed next to each other vertically, which resembles the look of a corn cob. The spines are pinkish white, thick and pointy like toothpicks, up to 0.4 inches (1 cm) long and scattered around the stem.

     From late winter to early summer, Euphorbia mammillaris variegata produces small red and orange flowers from each stem. Protect from frost.

     All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
  •  Full Sun, Partial Sun.

     Well-drained, porous cactus mix.

     Water thoroughly only when soil is dry to the touch, then let drain completely. Avoid letting water sit for too long in the soil to prevent rot and fungal diseases. Water more regularly from March to September its growing season). Reduce watering to a minimum in the winter.

     You can propagate Euphorbia mammillaris by cuttings in late spring or summer. Precaution: All Euphorbias contain a white sap that can be irritating to the human body. If you accidentally come in contact with this sap, be careful not to touch your face or eyes and immediately wash your hands with soap and water.

  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
