The wonky look of Euphorbia lactea will add a character to your garden that no other plant can. It has three-sided, candelabra arms and a tall, lanky stem. The silhouette is wobbly. In fact, Euphorbia lactea nearly resembles a child’s drawing. It doesn’t seem like it, but mottled spurge is a shrub, not a cactus. This is due to the presence of sap and the absence of large flowers. Also unlike cacti, Euphorbia lactea is a tropical plant. It’s native to India, Sri Lanka, and other areas in tropical Asia.
Soil: to keep your succulent happy, be sure it is planted in well-draining soil.
Light: this plant likes partial light; too much light too fast can cause it to burn. Outdoors it will prefer somewhere with bright shade most of the day. Indoors it will do best near the brightest window in your home.
Water: water your plant by using a watering can; misting it will not give the roots the moisture they need. Pour water at the stem of the plant, and continue until water drains out of the bottom of your planter.
