Desert Cactus - Euphorbia erytrea

Sprouts of Bristol
Checking local availability

This cactus has a bit of damage to the top of him, which he is now recovering from but he will always have cosmetic signs of this - he accidentally went missing on a 300-mile round trip for a few months and came back with some stories to tell, a bit of missing soil and a little bit more character...


  • Allow the soil to almost completely dry out before watering - in the winter it can be completely dry.
  • Ensure good drainage
  • Likes bright sunlight
  • Highly toxic, wear gloves when handling and no nibbling
