A succulent plant that’s adapted to arid conditions, this euphorbia thrives in both full sun and bright, indirect light. The common name “milkstripe” is due to an irregular yellowish-white band in the center of the plant’s three-or-four-sided, somewhat prickly stems.
Plant Care tips
- Lighting: These plants prefer bright indirect sunlight.
- Temperature: Ideally, it should be placed in the temperature range of 60° F to 80° F.
- Fertilizing: Feed monthly fertilization with a succulent fertilizer diluted to half-strength. Only fertilize succulents during the growing season, and don’t feed during winter.
Watering: Water only when the soil dries out. In summer, water the succulents every week or two. During winter, water infrequently—every month or even less.
