The Euphorbia Trigona, is also known by the common name of African milk tree or cathedral cactus.
A species of the genus Euphorbia native to southeastern Africa (Rio Graboon).
It is a shrub with succulent stems in the shape of a candelabrum. The stems of this species are triangular in shape, although in some cases they can appear with up to 4 edges in whose corners, longitudinally elongated leaves accompanied by thorns continuously grow along, usually staying in the plant for a long time, if the temperature and watering are adequate.
- HOW TO CARE:
It needs warm and constant temperatures for its optimal development.
In winter you can place indoor for warmer temperatures and can be placed in an outdoor area where the temperature is around 10-15 ºC.
The ideal location for this plant is in a semi-shaded position, it tolerates full sun, if it is not too intense.
Indoors, it needs very bright and airy places.
It does not require very specific substrates, but Cactus Soil preferably or Soil with a sandy base to facilitate good drainage.
An excess of irrigation will cause damage to the foot of the stem and the plant will die.
Irrigations should be patchy, but regular and always when the substrate is dry.
In summer, it is necessary to water it so that the substrate never gets fully dry, but avoiding puddles.
