Originating out of South Africa, Euphorbia globosa is a dwarf succulent made up of odd globular, segmented fingers off a caudiciform (woody root) base. It rarely grows taller than 3 inches, preferring instead to branch out and cover ground up to a foot across. As it grows, older globe leaves callous over and form what looks like a blobby trunk.
Euphorbia globosa does 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.
Native to arid and sub-tropical climates Euphorbia globosa are drought tolerant plants. Water sparingly in the summer and only a few times throughout the winter. Their soil should be allowed to dry out entirely before watering thoroughly.
Euphorbia aeruginosa can be propagated from stem cuttings. Take great care when cutting these plants as they contain a sap that can be highly irritant if contacted with skin. Allow cuttings to callous for several days before dusting with rooting hormone and placing in soil. Fertilize: These plants do not require fertilizer though it can be added to give container grown plants a boost or to supplement poor soil. Apply a water-soluble, balanced fertilizer monthly, diluted at half strength.
Approx. 2" tall and 2" wide. Every plant will vary in size, color and shape.
