Euphorbia mammillaris - Indian Corn Cob


Euphorbia mammiliaris - Indian Corn Cob: 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 once a week or less in the summer and once a month in the winter. With plenty of space and sunlight, E. mammillaris can reach 12 inches tall with new branches that sprout from the base.

NOTE: Handling Euphorbia may cause skin irritation or allergic reaction. Please use caution.
