Ideal Conditions

  1. Light: Euphorbia tithymaloides prefers bright, indirect sunlight. Place it near a window where it can receive plenty of natural light without being exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods, as too much sun can scorch its leaves.
  2. Temperature: This plant prefers warm temperatures between 65°F to 85°F (18°C to 29°C). It cannot tolerate cold drafts or temperatures below 50°F (10°C), so it’s crucial to keep it away from chilly windows or doors during the colder months.
  3. Soil: Use a well-draining soil mix tailored for cacti and succulents, or create your own by mixing regular potting soil with perlite or sand to improve drainage. This prevents waterlogged soil, which can lead to root rot.
  4. Humidity: While it can adapt to normal indoor humidity levels, Euphorbia tithymaloides benefits from slightly higher humidity levels, especially during dry winter months. You can increase humidity by placing a humidity tray filled with water and pebbles beneath the plant or by occasionally misting its leaves.
  5. Potting: Repot the plant into a slightly larger container every 2-3 years, preferably in spring. Ensure the new pot has drainage holes to prevent water accumulation at the roots.

Watering Period

Allow the soil to dry out partially between waterings, as Euphorbia tithymaloides is susceptible to root rot if kept too wet. Water thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry, but be cautious not to let the soil become bone dry for extended periods.

Fertilization

Feed the plant with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing during the dormant winter months.
