Euphorbia trigona is a an easy care succulent that originates from West Africa. It makes a fascinating architectural addition to room designs, with it's upright stems and ridges of short-lived leaves and thorns.
Also known as the African milk tree because of the milky sap contained in the stems it makes an urban style statement but is best avoided around children and pets.
Droppin' like it’s hot? During summer months, be sure to keep the soil of your African Milk Tree slightly moist as leaf drop can be an indication of stress due to drought.
If you're still seeing drop even after increased watering, don't sweat it! The leaves on these plants are short-lived and die off on a regular basis. This is natural and the plant will generate more from time-to-time.
Turn up that HEAT! The Euphorbia Trigona rubra prefers a warmer environment, ideally no lower than 15°C.
