How do i care for a euphorbia millii



I would imagine they like lots of sun and warmth, sandy, gritty free draining soil, copious water in summer, keep dry and frost free in winter.

Winter wet combined with the cold would be my problem with them

I saw this and copied it for you :)

Light: Bright light to full sun.

Water: Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Water less in winter when the plant rests. Also, avoid getting water on the leaves and stems because they can rot if they get too wet.

Humidity: Average to dry room humidity.

Temperature: Grows best with average room temperatures 60-75°F, 16-24°C; A cooler winter rest of 55°F/13° will help it to bloom.

Soil: A fast-draining medium such as cactus potting mix works best.

Propagation: Take 3 in (7.5 cm) stem cuttings in spring or summer. Dip the cut ends in warm water for a few minutes to stop the flow of sap then allow to dry for 24 hours before inserting into barely moist potting mix. Cuttings will root in about 6 weeks.
