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.

  • 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.

Weird and wonderful.

This was part of a two-plant purchase. My other plant was very disappointing, but this was fabulous. Though shipped bare-rooted, the plant was in excellent shape. Around 5" tall and seems to be adapting well to life in a pot. I love weird succulents and this fit the bill nicely.

Super cool cactus!

I was so intrigued by this unique cactus! They came perfectly packaged (as always), and I got 3 small plants. They are doing very well so far! Love the tiny pink flowers on top!

Cute but super tiny

The cactus came packed super well and was very healthy. I love it a lot! I was definitely expecting it to be a lot bigger based off of other reviews and I’m a little disappointed about it’s small size.
