Euphorbia inermis aka 'Medusa's head' is a small geophytic species, both a caudiciform and medusoid Euphorbia, native to the eastern Cape of South Africa. It has many branches that radiate from a central stem, which resembles a spiral when viewed from above.

Euphorbia plants do best in full sun, at least 5 to 8 hours a day. Avoid intense afternoon sun. Grow outdoors in light shade or indoors in a sunny window with southern exposure and direct sun.

In late Spring and Summer, water soil thoroughly, allowing it to dry completely in between waterings. During the winter when the plant is dormant, water less frequently. Always check your local weather before watering indoor arid plants in winter. It is best to water if there is a stretch of sunshine in the forecast.
