Green Coral is by far the strangest succulent in our collection. This plant is stemless and grows in a wild spiral fashion. Green Coral is also known as Crested Medusa's Head because it grows slender green shoots from the top of the fan-like growth. A true oddity to add to your succulent collection. Will grow in full sun and turn red when stressed. This Euphorbia will release a white liquid called "latex" when cut that can be poisonous and irritate your skin.
Native to: S. Africa
Hardiness: tender soft succulent - will not tolerate frost
Recommended light conditions: full sun to part shade
Bloom Color: yellow
Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
Watering Needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.

Knowing what your planting zone is can be vitally important to your plants thriving. Keep in mind that the zones pertain to OUTDOOR planting. If you plan to keep your plants indoors for fall-winter the zones may be irrelevant.

Amassing plants thank you
I love this guy. He's different and I like unusual things
When looking for succulents I found this cute little succulent that looked so different from the others. I had to have it. When my package arrive the succulents were carefully packaged. They arrived in perfect condition. All of the succulents in my order are doing nicely, especially my very special “Green Coral”.
