Planting Euphorbia Decaryi

This plant is very easy to breed from seeds or cuttings. If you want to make this flower as a room decoration, you can do stem cuttings and place them in small pots. You can choose a cute pot to make this plant look more attractive. Use a very draining loose compost which mainly consists of non-organic material such us clay, pumice, lava grit, and only a little peat or leaf-mold. Based on my experience, this mini-plant can also grow well on media that is not too dry.
Euphorbia Decaryi is a slow-growing plant. You will see little growth within a year, so repotting can take 2-4 years. After a long time, new shoots will grow.
