Plant Care Guide

Full Sunlight


Euphorbias enjoy at least six to eight hours of direct sunlight; some species can tolerate some shade. If you are in a hot climate, afternoon shade is welcomed.

Frequent Watering


When the plant is actively growing from spring to fall, give water when the first few inches of soil are feeling dry. However, in the winter, water Euphorbias only when it starts to show signs of wilting.



All euphorbias need well-draining sandy soil. A cactus, succulent potting mix is ideal. All Euphorbias benefit from an initial fertilization; either compost or organic fertilizer will promote good, healthy, growth. When the plant is established, they will manage with a weak liquid fertilizer given throughout the growing season.

Average Humidity


Most species of Euphorbia can manage hot temperatures, but they prefer an average temperature of 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Depending on the species, cold tolerance is manageable where some may handle light frost while others don’t do well in a temperature below 55 degrees. Humidity also varies but it is important to have good ventilation about Euphorbias to prevent fungal disease in climates with high humidity.
