When we saw this plant, we just knew we had to add it to our Weird & Wonderful plant collection. This plant is made up of two different cacti grafted together, the lovely coral top is the Euphorbia Lactea Cristata (you might also be interested in this larger version).
Due to the rigid nature of these larger cacti, they are likely to have some callouses or old battle scars - we think this adds to their character!
The top part of the plant will produce small leaves in pink and green, especially after being in transit these can crisp up and fall off - this is completely normal and they will grow back once they have settled in to their new environments.
Light: Bright indirect light will promote the best growth. Older plants can withstand direct sunlight.
Water: Only water once the soil is completely dry. Bottom watering is preferred.
Food: Not a requirement but if you choose to; use a light cacti fertiliser.
Humidity: Will thrive in a normal home humidity but will also tolerate dry air.
