Euphorbia (Macaronesian Succulent Spurge)

Succulent Euphorbias from the Macaronesian region (Azores, Canary islands, Cabo Verde islands, Madeira and northwestern Africa) occur in the lower succulent zone at between sea level to 800m, respectively the laurel forest on the Azores, the Canaries and Madeira. They are good pot or container plants for any rich, very well drained substrate in a sunny spot throughout the year. Keep plants drier in winter at a minimum of some 12°C.
Sow flat in any rich and very well drained substrate at some 20°C all year long. Keep pots in a sunny spot. Seeds germinate very irregularly over a longer period, some may germinate within one week after potting, and others may need up to six months. Transplant in early spring as soon as seedlings are strong enough.
Note: All parts are poisonous if ingested, the milk sap may cause severe skin irritations and eye burns !
