Sticks on Fire
Euphorbias need well-draining soil and lots of sunlight . 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 .
Sticks of Fire, more traditionally called Fire Stick Euphorbia, are some of the most unique and wonderful desert native plant specimens around. Sticks of Fire have such a unique color and structure, it's practically a coral reef for desert landscapes. The Sticks of Fire maintain an orange and green color during most months, but turn fiery red in the winter, then returning to a lighter green in the summer. This color display is an unusual but welcome sight in the winter when most desert landscapes are lacking in extravagance.
Suitable for Container, Rock Garden & Xeriscaping
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.
