Euphorbia Trigonia (African Milk Tree)


The African Milk Tree is native to Central Africa. It is often grown as a hedge there, useful for its rapid and enthusiastic growth. Though it looks a lot like a cactus, it is actually a succulent plant. It stays lush and green throughout its growing season, and new growth has a lighter green colour than the base plant.


Light: This succulent likes indirect but bright sunlight: a southern-facing window will work well for it indoors, or an outdoor spot with partial sun. v

Water: Being a succulent, the African milk tree doesn't need much water. If there is a very bad drought, consider supplemental watering at the roots. But otherwise normal rainfall should be sufficient. Indoor specimens should be watered moderately once a week.


The plant you will receive will be close to the one in the picture. As living creatures, like us, they all grow differently, are individuals and slightly different. Which is excellent! 

The three plants we have at the moment are roughly 1.2m in height already and absolutely thriving!!!

Indoors, in the right conditions, this slower growth can grow up to 2 metres in height. WOW.

Plants come in nursery growing pots. Decorative pots, the plant is photographed in is not included in price. However, we are sourcing cool decorative pots and they will soon become available :)  


All our indoor plants (at present) are delivered in person. We can deliver within a radius of 20km from Melbourne CBD for a flat rate of $15.
