Product Details

Highlights

Indian Corn Cob (Euphorbia mammiliaris): A columnar, cactus-like plant studded with occasional spikes that resemble toothpicks. "Corncob" euphorbias are lined with raise tubercles that shrink in the dry season and swell when rehydrated. They are extremely drought tolerant and need great drainage. Water up to once a week in the summer and up to once a month in the winter, allowing the soil to fully dry out. With plenty of space and sunlight, E. mammillaris can reach 12.0" tall with new branches that sprout from the base. This plant is fully rooted in a 2.0" square, plastic pot.

PLEASE NOTE: Euphorbia contain a white, latex sap that can cause skin irritation or allergic reaction. Use gloves and eye protection to handle.

Euphorbia will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures they can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. They need bright sunlight, great drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 75% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply and wait for the soil to completely dry out before watering again.
