Just received a 10" cutting from wifes friend, she did not know what it was. I spent time to locate it online and found it, what a cool plant. However I could not find any detailed info on propagation, only "cuttings". I have a large night blooming cereus ( which seems like a similar plant ) though the main plant is doing great and flowers well, I have had trouble with starting roots, don't understand why since I am pretty good with plants.


On plant Euphorbia tirucalli

Wash any of the milky latex off then leave for the end of the cutting to dry and callous for a couple of weeks before rooting in coarse sand.
