Euphorbia Platyclada is commonly known as the ‘Dead Plant’ due to its resemblance of dried out sticks but fear not, this plant is alive and well and even features very small flowers! The stick like limbs of this plant are spattered with shades of red and orange with a wrinkled texture.
Euphorbia Platyclada is like many succulents and is relatively easy to care for. The plant requires very low watering through the winter dormancy period and semi-regular watering in summer. It should be kept close to a window where is can get lots of light and a cooler space in winter but should avoid afternoon sun in summer.
Euphorbia Platyclada is a wonderful feature plant for any collection, its shape, flowers, colour and all characteristics make the plant like no other in your collection. An essential plant which loves you for not loving it!
