Another easy to care for addition to the succulent family, Euphorbia erytrea is an impressive presentation of living architecture. Capable of reaching heights of up to 2 meters indoors, this cactus displays a rippled, undulating silhouette with a serration of spines along its margins. A gathering of plantlets pinches in at the waist of the main stem, harkening back to the blazing arid climates of the Badlands.
