Euphorbia trigona is a plant that belongs to the Euphorbiaceae family and is native to southwest Africa.

It is commonly known as Milk Plant, Crown and African Milk Tree.

They are succulent plants of branched columnar habit that become shrubby with age and can reach 3-4 meters in height (in pots they grow less). They have 3 or 4 very marked ribs with small thorns on the edge. At the top of the plant some leaves emerge, about 5 cm long, spatula-shaped. They produce small yellowish flowers.

It is used in succulent gardens, as isolated specimens, in pots for terraces and patios and as houseplants in well-lit rooms.

This plant prefers light shade exposure, avoiding direct sunlight during the hottest hours of the day. It does not like temperatures below 10 ºC, with the cold it loses its leaves.

It likes a mixture of coarse siliceous sand and well decomposed leaf mulch.

This plant should be watered moderately, waiting for the soil to dry out between waterings. If they suffer prolonged drought they can lose their leaves.

They do not need fertilizers but we can add a handful of organic matter in late winter or early spring.

Pruning is not necessary for this plant.

Euphorbia trigona can be attacked by whitefly in case of drought and by fungi in case of overwatering.

It is propagated from seeds sown in spring and by cuttings in summer. Be very careful with the irritating latex of these plants and protect your hands well.
