Pot size ⌀12cm


Euphorbia triangularis is a unique and fascinating succulent plant that belongs to the Euphorbiaceae family. It is native to Madagascar and is known for its striking triangular-shaped stems, which can grow up to 20 cm long. The stems are thick and fleshy, with sharp ridges that run along each edge, giving the plant a distinctive appearance.

Euphorbia triangularis produces small, yellow-green flowers that are surrounded by bright yellow bracts. The flowers are inconspicuous and not particularly showy, but they add an interesting contrast to the green color of the plant. The bracts are the main attraction of the plant, and they can last for several weeks before falling off.

One of the most appealing aspects of Euphorbia triangularis is its ease of care. It is a hardy plant that is relatively tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions, making it an ideal plant for beginner gardeners. It requires well-draining soil and bright, indirect sunlight, but it can also tolerate partial shade.

Like all Euphorbia species, Euphorbia triangularis contains a milky sap that is toxic to humans and animals. It can cause skin irritation and other allergic reactions if it comes into contact with the skin, and it can be harmful if ingested. Therefore, it is important to handle the plant with care and wear gloves when pruning or repotting.

Overall, Euphorbia triangularis is a unique and fascinating plant that is sure to add interest and texture to any collection of succulents or tropical plants. Its distinctive shape and ease of care make it a popular choice among plant enthusiasts and collectors.
