Euphorbia lactea cristata belongs to the genus Euphorbia and is included in the family Euphorbiaceae and consists of more than 2,000 species of cactiform (cactus-like) plants, herbaceous plants and shrubs or saplings. 

It is commonly known as Crested plant, Euphorbia cresta, Crested plant and Crested candelabra plant. It is a native species of India and Sri Lanka.

These plants are cactiform euphorbias with curious crested and wavy green stems with yellowish, pink or violet spots. They are leafless but have black spines on parts of their wavy ribs. They do not usually flower.

These plants are very slow growing and easy to grow and are used in pots as house and terrace plants. Weather permitting they are suitable for rock gardens and cactus and succulent gardens.

Euphorbia lactea cristata needs a light exposure with a few hours of sun per day, best in the early morning. Direct sun in the central hours of the day is not suitable. The winter temperature should not be less than 10 °C.

The soil can be commercial cactus compost. Transplanting is done in spring but due to its slow growth rate this is rarely done.

Watering should be moderate as they resist drought very well at a rate of once every 10 days in summer. It is advisable to wait until the soil has dried out completely. In winter, stop watering if grown outdoors and water once a month at the most indoors.

Monthly fertilisation with mineral fertiliser for cacti in spring and summer is sufficient. It is a plant that does not need pruning.

The only serious danger for these plants is overwatering, which causes tissue rot.

They are propagated by cuttings in spring which are left to dry for 1 week in a cool, well-lit place. Beware of the irritating latex of these plants.
