Euphorbia lactea (Coral Cactus)

Also known as crested Euphorbia, this plant can be found in two forms: grafted or not.

Euphorbia lacteal Coral Cactus succulent

Also known as crested Euphorbia, this plant can be found in two forms: grafted or not. The grafted form generally has the wavy, coral-like succulent attached to the top of a tall, thick stem. The ungrafted form is just the wavy part, rooted directly in the soil. Either form makes a great addition to a mixed succulent container or on it’s own as a sun-loving houseplant.

Light
Most varieties of succulents need at least half a day to a full day of sunlight.

Planting
Remove plants from their pots and plant making sure the soil level remains the same depth on the plant.

Soil
Succulents need good draining soil. For container planting you can purchase cactus soil or incorporate sand, gravel or volcanic rock for better drainage. The container you are planting in should have a drainage hole.

Watering
After planting, water in well and allow the soil to dry between waterings. Water when soil is dry and the sun is shining. Succulents don’t like to have wet feet.

Fertilizer
Most succulents need very little fertilizer. Watering with a well balanced fertilizer once a month will be all they need.
