South East Madagascar
Euphorbia cylindrifolia is a dwarf, low-growing cushion-forming succulent with a rosette of narrow, serpent-like stems arising from a short, central subterranean caudex.
The branches are erect, ascending-spreading or decumbent at the circumference, which look like a bunch of octopus tentacles and twist over each other to form a rather lumpy hemispheric cushion. The leaves are in tufted rosettes at the tips of the branches, dark reddish-green, fleshy, up 2,5-3 cm long, terete, 3 mm in diameter, deeply channelled on upper side and bent into a hook at the tip.
Euphorbias are very easy to care for. They require a little pampering to become established, but once they are, they are self-sufficient. In fact, more die from too much care and watering than from neglect. The plant need well-draining soil and lots of sunlight. They are not particular about soil pH, but they cannot tolerant wet soil. Unlike most succulents, Euphorbia does not handle long periods of drought well. It may need weekly watering during the summer. Water whenever the soil is dry several inches below the surface. Water deeply, but don t let them sit in wet soil, which can cause root rot
Ideal for windowsill & pot culture.
For watering cacti, the golden rule is to make sure the soil is completely dry before watering! This will stop the roots from rotting. It is advised to always use a pot with a drainage hole so that excess water can get drained out. If kept in a sunny area, you will need to water it once every week. If it is in a semi shaded or filtered light area, you might need to water it once in 2 weeks.
Cacti like soil that is well aerated and fast draining. You can fertilise the cactus in the summer months when it is in its growing season. During the winters it is best to cut back on any fertiliser and let the plant rest.
