Euphorbia 'African Milk Tree'Regular price $35.00
Euphorbia Trigona, or the African Milk Tree as it's commonly known, is a highly architectural and curious houseplant. Easy to look after, pest resistant and a fast grower means it makes the perfect specimen that adds interest to a sunny spot.
Like many in the Euphorbia genus, it's a mix between a cactus and a succulent plant but has traits familiar with both.
These guys really don't like being touched or played with. The thorns will deter most people and pets, but if this isn't enough, it will ooze a latex sap that's both unpleasant to taste and also highly irritating to eyes and mucous membranes like those found in the mouth .
If you can live with those negatives, it's an adaptable houseplant that only has basic and simple to follow care needs. In return it will grow pretty fast and provide all-year interest.
