An unusual and rare caudiciform Euphorbia that is native to South Africa.

The actual plant is shown in the listing photographs. It is 8-1/2 inches tall, has a caudex that is 1-1/4 inches in diameter and stems that spread over an 11 x 11 inch area. Will ship without pot or soil and arms will be individually wrapped to help prevent breakage and scarring.
Squarrosa is one of a handful of Euphorbia that forms a large caudex, a swollen root segment that it uses to store water that sustains it during periods of drought. The long spiny branches typically twist as they grow to a length of up to 8 inches. The caudex may grow to be 5 inches in diameter , with the maximum plant height being approximately 12 inches.
Although these are uncommon plants, they are not difficult to grow. They prefer exposure to direct morning through early afternoon sunlight but can tolerate being placed in an area that receives bright indirect sun for the entire day. Between late spring and early fall, their soil should be allowed to dry completely before being watered again. Water them only once every 4 to 6 weeks for the balance of the year. Squarrosa can survive below freezing temperatures but are at their best when not exposed to temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit. They are particular about the soil they are planted in and we use a soil containing 50% perlite, 30% decomposed granite and 20% cactus soil. Other mixtures that provide excellent drainage may also be suitable.
