Discover the unique Resin Spurge, a succulent that resembles a cactus with its bluish to lime green stems and spines. Ideal for adding an eye-catching element to gardens or indoor spaces.

A low-growing shrub, Resin Spurge forms cushion-shaped clumps and can reach up to 24 inches in height and 5 feet in width. Its vibrant colors and spiky texture make it a stunning focal point in any setting.

Plant Characteristics

Thrives in full sun, needing at least six hours daily; partial shade is beneficial in hot climates. Water sparingly and deeply, allowing the soil to dry between waterings to avoid overwatering and root rot.

Light and Watering Requirements

Use well-drained soil in containers with drainage holes; a cactus/succulent mix is recommended. Propagate through stem cuttings, allowing them to dry before planting in well-draining soil.

Potting and Propagation

Resin Spurge grows slowly but steadily, forming dense clumps with rare, bright yellow blooms. Minimal maintenance required; watch for pests like aphids and diseases like root rot, and handle with care due to its toxic latex.
