Euphorbia Heterodoxa | Botany & Care
The Euphorbia Heterodoxa is very decorative with highly branched twigs that look a bit like pencils. Small flowers bloom at the ends of the branches.
BOTANY | The plant family Euphorbia contains many different species, but they all have in common that they all contain plant sap, which is also called spurge. The Euphorbia is a succulent plant that originates in Brazil. It grows there on a rocky surface.
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.
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.
