African Milk Tree (Euphorbia Trigona 'Red Devil') is a hardy, fast-growing species in a reddish green form. It will eventually grow into a small shrub up to two metres tall or kept small and compact when grown in containers. When encountering dryness or coldness in winter, it will defoliate to adapt.
Please note: While not all succulents are poisonous, this particular variety does have high levels of toxicity. Great care should be taken when dealing with this succulent. Avoid touching the stems. Keep away from pets and children
Size (Can grow to)
Fast growing. Plant grows up to 8′ (2.5 m) tall and grows up to 5′ (1.5 m) wide
Bright, indirect light, early morning sun will give a healthy amount of sun stress to keep those brilliant colours. If indoors, ensure it gets enough direct sun - a warm sunny spot is ideal.
Low. Like most succulents the African Milk Tree require little water due to the ability to store water in its leaves, making it a low maintenance plant.
