INDOOR OR OUTDOOR PLANT - Euphorbia Ferro in a 20cm Pot
Our large collection of Euphorbias consistently tend to be one of our most popular range of plants. Loved for their quirky characteristics and ability to make a bold statement in any home.
These plants are often mistaken for cacti due to many of the popular varieties sharing a similar visual appearance however, they are really an entirely unique genus unto themselves that includes over 2000 species of annuals, perennials, shrubs and trees and includes spiny cactus and showy perennials.
Euphorbias are the most incredible family. They look nothing like each other and their diversity is amazing!
The Euphorbia Ferox looks just like a cluster of miniature red tinged cactus's however is again is actually a succulent. It comes from South Africa and is a slow-growing plant that grows to about 12cm tall.
Euphorbias are very easy to care for, in fact, too much care, especially overwatering, will cause more issues than from neglect. They are fairly hardy and make great plants for beginners.
Euphorbia Ferox are pretty simple to grow - keep them in a spot that receives lots of light and relatively warm temperatures. If outside the Ferox can tolerate full sun.
Euphorbia can tolerate periods of drought, especially over winter when they go dormant. In the growing season they need water to flourish. Water when the top few inches are completely dry and allow the soil to fully dry out before watering again.
WE RECOMMEND PLANTING IN...
Euphorbia need to be planted into very well-draining soil where their roots will not sit for long in moisture as they are prone to root rot. Choose a pot with adequate drainage and a size that is approximately 3-5cm larger than what it is currently being grown in (so between 25-30cm). A medium sized Bower pot would make a winning combination.
If you would like it potted in a pot from our range just add to your order and we'll pre-pot it so it's delivered to you with the messy (and spiky!) work already done!
* Please note all of our plants are hand selected for their quality and individual character - the plant you receive may not be the one selected but it will one of the same quality.
