Product Details

Highlights

'Sticks on Fire' - Firesticks (Euphorbia tirucalli): Striking reddish-orange, gold, and light green succulent. It has many coral-like branches, each about the width of a pencil. When planted in the ground in Mediterranean climates, it can develop into a 6.0"-8.0' tall shrub, though it will stay smaller indoors in a pot. The brightest red tones will emerge when the plant is under moderate stress from full sun, drought, or temperatures around 40-50F.

PLEASE NOTE: The milky sap inside Euphorbia can cause skin irritation or allergic reaction. Use gloves and eye protection to handle.

This plant is also available in a larger 3.5" pot.

Soft succulents 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, good drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again.

This variety is easy to re-root from stem cuttings. Look to our Succulent Cuttings Guide for tips on succulent propagation.
