The 'Pencil Cactus' is named after it's unusual long and spindly appearance, but it isn't actually a cactus at all! It's actually a Euphorbia which is a type of succulent plant that resembles the appearance of a cactus.
This Euphorbia wants lots of sunlight, so a bright windowsill or sunny room would be the ideal location for it. The more sun you provide this plant with the more vibrant the colours on its stems will become.
You are most at risk of damaging this plant by overwatering it. Resist the urge to over-care for your Euphorbia, allow them to dry out completely between waterings.
A really unusual plant sure to spark a conversation, perfect for fans of peculiar plants.
Light: Bright or direct sunlight will promote even growth.
Water: Only water once the soil is completely dry then give a heavy water.
Food: Use a light cacti fertiliser during growing season.
Humidity: Will thrive in a normal home humidity and also tolerate dry air.
