Euphorbia lactea Crested Growing Instructions
Euphorbia lactea Crested is simple to grow: Keep it in a spot that receives lots of light and relatively warm temperatures. It can take a lot of direct sun indoors, even in hot-summer climates.
Because it’s actually a succulent, crested euphorbia is a low-water houseplant and needs infrequent watering (typically once every couple of weeks or so). Take care not to overwater this easy houseplant; if the green rootstalk on the bottom rots, the top will get too heavy and collapse. If you’re in doubt about whether to water, it’s better to keep crested euphorbia a little too dry than too wet.
Crested euphorbia is often grown with a mulch of rocks glued together. Get tips for caring for
