Euphorbia Grandicornis belongs to the Euphorbiaceae family, a genus of about 2,000 species of succulent plants, trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants distributed over almost all continents.

It is commonly known as cow horn. This species comes from southern and eastern Africa.

They are shrubby succulent plants with a short main stem that branches and can reach up to 2 metres in height.

They have segments separated by constrictions and 3 well-marked, wavy edges, the horny edge of which bears pairs of spines up to 7 cm long and light brown or grey in colour. They produce the small yellow flowers typical of Euphorbias. They flower in spring. The fruits are reddish and are very decorative.

They are used in cactus and succulent gardens, in rock gardens and sunny slopes and in pots for patios and terraces and even indoors.

Euphorbia Grandicornis are rather slow growing plants that prefer full sun exposure when mature and semi-shade when young.

It is a plant that withstands the intense heat of the Mediterranean summer well, but in winter it is best if the temperature does not drop below 5 ºC.

The soil could be a mixture, in equal proportions, of coarse sand, leaf mould and garden soil. Transplanting is done in early spring.

Watering should be moderate and wait until the soil is very dry. Watering should be stopped in winter.

A light compost-based fertiliser at the beginning of spring is sufficient for the plant.

Pruning is not necessary for this plant unless it has a damaged segment.

Care should be taken with overwatering as excess moisture can cause the plant to rot.

Propagation is by seed sown in a sandy substrate and by segment cuttings, in which case protect from irritating latex and allow the cuttings to dry out before rooting in sandy, slightly moist soil.
