Euphorbia Anoplia is a unique cactus plant with an interesting pattern and structure. Will grow up to a foot tall and form clusters at the base of the mother plant. The pattern or markings on this cactus are striped that develop between the ridges of the cactus, making it look like zippers. The best thing about this cactus is that it has very little sharp spines to worry about. Euphorbia varieties contain a white, latex sap that can cause skin irritation or allergic reaction.

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.

Got my plants. Of course I'm always happy to recieve plants, lol! I appreciate how well packaged they were, individually wrapped and taped, the more delicate plants in boxes. Because that box must have gone through a lot getting to me here in Montana. The plants look good, I was worried about one, sent a pic right away and was told the plant looked fine and not to worry. And so far so good. So customer help was great too!
Health plant with three babies. Very happy with them
So cute! Exactly what I was looking for!
