Euphorbia tirucalli

Common Name: Firesticks; Pencil Cactus; Milk Bush; Indian Tree Bush

This succulent tree has bright green, long, pencil-thin stems that branch as it grows and when exposed to sunlight, these stems turn beautiful sunset shades of yellow to red, giving it the common name “firesticks”.

To encourage this signature orange coloring, make sure there is access to mostly direct light. Not suited for low-light conditions. 

The Pencil Cactus has low water requirements – every 1-2 weeks allowing soil to dry out between waterings. If dropping individual branches, the plant is being overwatered. A pot with a drainage hole is very helpful. 

It is normal for the small, slender leaves to fall off quickly as the plant matures, which is when it also starts producing tiny yellow flowers. 

*Be very careful when handling this plant! The stems break easily and the milky sap may cause irritation to skin and eyes. Use gloves.*

Welcome to The Plant Firm

The Plant Firm was created during the lockdown of 2020 as a fun project to give me something to do. It quickly became a much larger endeavor and one that I knew needed more attention to be done right. I was tired of paying an arm and a leg for plants at the big box store and saw an opportunity to save people time and money while also delivering straight to their door. So, here we are in 2023. Officially up and running with an amazing team, more plants, and a desire to provide you with better plants at better prices!
