The Pencil Cactus, or ‘Sticks on Fire’ is not actually a true Cacti, but a Euphorbia. It has long, slender stems that grow from a central base and during the cooler months, they turn a glowing pink, orange color! It can be grown indoors or out, but indoors it should be placed in a warm, sunny windowsill. We’ve potted this one with our special blend of well-draining succulent soil, in a unique ceramic pot with a hole for drainage.
LIGHT Your Pencil Cactus will flourish in bright light. Outdoors, it can be grown in full sun. Indoors, a south or west facing window is best.
WATER Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Then, water thoroughly until water comes through the drainage hole and let it drain completely. Frequency will vary depending on other factors, but every two weeks is a good starting point. Reduce frequency in the Winter months.
SIZE Approximately 21" H X 17" W (Pot Size: 8" D)
