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.
