We remove some of the soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are usually
no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. Take them out of the box and put into
a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: give
the roots opportunity to start reaching down for water. Check to see if the plant should be watered at that time of the year you purchase. Some don't get water in winter and some no water in summer.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

The photos on our website represent what they will look like. We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be
one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Euphorbia tirucalli, fire sticks

Euphorbia tirucalli firesticks is a native of South Africa. "Firesticks" is a red form. They have the most color fall through spring when they become inflamed with brilliant pinkish red in the cooler winter months. Their growth period is in the late spring and summer months. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch during active growing season. They need bright light to full sun to look their best. They need rest in winter so cut back on watering. Protect from frost. Remember, all Euphorbias contain a white sap that can be irritating to the skin and eyes. Wash hands immediately in soap and water if contact is made with the sap. Avoid touching face and eyes while handling Euphorbias.Euphorbia tirucalli - Fire sticks are a slower growing variety of Euphorbia tirucalli. I have a euphorbia tirucalli (not firesticks) which is about 8 high and 3-4 wide. Take cuttings in March and have rooted plants by May. They fade in summer and become redder in winter.
