Euphorbia tirucallii or Firestick plant
Euphorbia tirucalli is a native of arid South Africa, growing very rapidly and branching readily. "Firesticks" is a rare red form, and in time will become a striking specimen. The stems become inflamed with brilliant pinkish red in the cooler winter months. Responds well to warmth, with its active growth period in the late spring and summer months. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch during active growing season. Requires bright light to full sun for best appearance, and should be given a winter resting period at which time less water should be given. Protect from frost. Remember, all Euphorbias contain a white sap that can be irritating to the skin and eyes. Wash hands immediately in soap and water if contact is made with the sap. Avoid touching face and eyes while handling Euphorbias.
Succulent plants are among the hardiest, most drought-tolerant in the world and very easy to maintain, as long as they are planted in a porous cactus/succulent soil, given proper drainage, daily bright light, and not over watered.
You will receive 1 well-established, rooted plant, currently growing in a 4 inch pot, sent bareroot and packaged with great care. It will be shipped via USPS Priority mail.
If you are ordering from an area with weather below 32 degrees, please consider purchasing a heat pack.

Shipping & policies
Shipping 7-10 days with a few exceptions via USPS 2-3 day priority mail. We run specials, holidays and VACATIONS, shipping times will change, and will posted. Once the plant is ordered, we want to make sure that the roots are bare when shipped. Please open your package and unwrap as soon as they arrive. Succulent plants can lose their color and as with all living plants, they really prefer to get out of their boxes and into a good soil mixture. Any of the listings that state plants are shipped bare root means that they are out of the pot and have very little soil. While they can travel that way its best to get them replanted as soon as they get to their new home.
