Care Euphorbia Abyssinica
BOTANY | The plant family Euphorbia contains many different species, but they have in common that they all contain similar plant sap. Be careful with that, it is irritating to the skin and eyes. The Euphorbia Abyssinica originates from Northeast Africa. This succulent grows in well-drained stony soil such as on rocky slopes.
PLANT CARE | The Euphorbia Abyssinica var. needs little care. Let the soil dry out completely and then give a big splash of water. Make sure that the roots do not remain in water, as this can cause root rot. Do you want to grow the plant? Then give this sturdy succulent a larger pot to give the roots room to grow. Repot the Euphorbia with well-draining soil. Give organic plant food once a year during the growing season.
When you know where the plant originally comes from, you can imitate that environment at home or at work as closely as possible. Then your plant will feel completely at home in no time.
Be careful with over watering. With succulents in particular, an occasional splash of water is sufficient. When water remains at the bottom of the pot, root rot occurs and the plant usually does not survive this.
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.
