Despite its nickname 'pencil cactus, it is not a cactus, but rather a succulent plant. This unique Euphorbia almost looks like sea coral. Its stems are soft green, in summer they take on shades of yellow, and even a little orange. Its light requirements are quite high, it likes a good 4 hours of direct sun per day, and for watering, you must let the soil dry at least by half before watering again. It is an easy-care plant and suitable for beginners.
