PLANT CARE | The Euporbia needs little care. Only water when the soil has dried for about 1 week in the warm months and 1 x every 6 weeks in the colder months. Do you want to grow the plant? Then give this succulent plant a larger pot to give the roots room to grow. Repot the Euphorbia with well-draining soil to prevent the soil from staying moist. Give organic plant food once a year in the summer.

Flower pot

The kraft paper pot is waterproof for several weeks to months, depending on the water needs of the plant. The pot is 100% biodegradable and plastic-free. As soon as moisture spots appear in the soil, the pot is no longer watertight and it is best to repot the plant. After repotting, the pot can be handed in with the waste paper to be recycled.
