Plant Care

Watering

Place the plant pot in a tray and fill the tray with water such that the plant can absorb the water directly from the tray. Do this once every week or when the soil dries out. Don't water the plant directly from the top as this will cause the plant leaves to rot.

Light

Bright indoor light or indirect sun. 6 hours to 8 hours

Temperature

Maintain temperatures between 18°C - 24°C. Avoid draughts as these can create undesirable temperature fluctuations. Consider giving your plant an occasional misting twice every week to maintain the optimum humidity level.

Fertilizer

Apply liquid fertilizer once in 15 days when the plant is actively growing. For best results use Folikraft ready to use Indoor Plant Food.

Plant Bio

This unique euphorbia has elongated, succulent leaves that grow on woody stems. It's super low-maintenance, and as long as it gets abundant sunlight, it will thrive. Occasional waterings are enough to keep this tough plant happy.

Pro-tip: If the leaves appear to be wrinkled, this means it's time for a drink. 

Sunlight
Thrives in bright indirect to bright indirect light. Can handle a few hours of sun.

Water
Water weekly. Allow potting mix to dry out before watering. Soil about 1-2” down should be dry to touch. Water more frequently during warmer months and fertilize during growth. Generally, the plant will droop to show that it needs more water. Do not overwater or keep the soil wet for too long, as this will encourage root rot.

Humidity
Any humidity level will do. Normal room humidity is fine.

Temperature
65°F-85°F (18°C-30°C). It’s best not to let it go below 60°F (15°C).

Common Problems
It is generally a very easygoing plant. Should it get spider mites, treat the plant as soon as they appear with weekly sprays of horticultural (Neem) oil and regular wipe-downs of the plant.


SYMPTOM: Leaves turning brown, crispy at leaf edges and/or drooping leaves
