Euphorbia obesa 3"
Euphorbia obesa is a subtropical succulent from the Cape Province of South Africa, indigenous to a small range in the arid Karoo region. Often called "Baseball Plant" due to it's incredibly spherical shape when juvenile. As Euphorbia obesa matures, it will become taller, and more cylindrical in shape. This sp. is dioecious - meaning a specimen only produces male or female flowers, called cyathia, with males having larger cyathia. Although often incorrectly called a cactus, it has displayed a neat biological trick called convergent evolution with Astrophytum asterias, which is actually a true cactus native to parts of Texas, and Mexico.
Euphorbia obesa enjoys very bright indirect light to direct sunlight, a gritty well-draining soil, moderate to high temps, and infrequent waterings. Prone to rot and overwatering.
Recently potted in arid cactus mix, so roots are establishing. We recommend waiting until spring or summer to repot. Won't need a bigger pot until it reaches the edges of the pot.
3" nursery pots available.
