  •   Euphorbia Trigona f. Rubra is native to Africa. It is an unusual succulent that is often mistaken for a cactus because of its interesting shape and short sharp spines.

      It is low maintenance and can be grown as an indoor plant.

     The sap of Euphorbia Trigona f. Rubra is toxic, so protection is needed when propagating this succulent. Make sure that the sap doesn't get in touch with your skin or eye because it can cause serious irritation.

      Sand mix succulent soil, porous and well-draining soil.

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

  • 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.
