  • Light Required

    Euphorbia plants prefer a spot in full sun, meaning at least six hours of direct sunlight on most days, though some species can tolerate part shade.

  • Watering

    Water whenever the top couple inches of soil feels dry from spring to fall when the plant is actively growing.

  • Best Growing Conditions

    Temperature and Humidity. Most Euphorbia species can tolerate hot temperatures and prefer a warm environment with average daytime temperatures around 20 degrees. Feeding requirements vary by euphorbia species, but in general, all of them will benefit from some fertilizer. Adding compost or a balanced organic fertilizer to a new plant will help to promote healthy growth. After that initial feeding, many Euphorbia species will do fine with a weak liquid fertilizer applied throughout the growing season. For the amount to use, follow the product label instructions. Container-grown plants typically need more feeding than plants grown in the ground. And a plant that develops yellowing leaves at the bottom is one that's in need of feeding.
