Euphorbia trigona 'rubra'

This plant shines bright with red-tinted green columns, spiked and outlined in vibrant red leaves. Elegant, yet edgy, it's as easy to care for as they come and thrives on neglect.

Bright indirect or direct light.

SM: ~8-10" tall and a 4" pot.
MD: ~12-15" tall and a 6" pot.

Pro-tip: Leaves dropping? No worries. They shed frequently, but new ones will take their place. 

  • No sweat
  • Direct sun
  • Toxic to pets
  • Once a month

Ruby

The dirt had fallen out of the pot when received the package. But I just replanted it, watered it and put it on my plant stand in the window and it is doing just fine. I water it once every 2 weeks and it's doing just fine. ❤

Rooted

Sorry to hear about the messy unboxing experience! Shipping couriers can be pretty rough. So glad to hear the plant is in good hands now, and seems to be doing well. :-)

Excited!

I bought a larger plant before, and I liked the look of it so much that I got another one. This one is cooler because it’s already started branching (the first plant are just straight limbs so far). I’ve never had a Euphorbia before, so I’m excited to try my hand at growing them. I know they can get huge if they survive long enough!
