How to Care for and Cultivate Euphorbia poissonii variegata

Euphorbia poissonii variegata succulent is a succulent plant of the Euphorbia genus, native to Africa and found on rocky hills in dry grasslands. It is known as the "Desert General" among desert plants. As a succulent plant of the Euphorbia genus, although it grows slowly, it is easy to care for and is practically the ceiling of lazy plant enthusiasts. Its unique shape, when combined with tropical desert landscapes, is grand and warm, fresh and elegant, definitely presenting a unique and beautiful scenery!

It prefers loose, well-drained sandy soil, which can be prepared by mixing leaf mold, garden soil, and sand.

It prefers sunlight and should be placed in a well-lit, ventilated area. In summer, partial shading may be necessary. If kept indoors for long periods, it should be regularly moved outdoors to bask in the sun to replenish energy.

It is drought-tolerant and prefers a dry soil environment. Water sparingly, as too much watering can lead to root rot. Its fleshy stems and leaves act as "reservoirs" for storing water.

The optimal growth temperature is around 22 to 28°C. Temperature control should be observed in summer and winter. It enters dormancy when temperatures reach 35°C in summer and should be moved indoors promptly in winter to prevent freezing, as temperatures below 5°C can cause frostbite or death.

During the spring growing season, apply a thin layer of fertilizer 2-3 times, but avoid using concentrated or fresh fertilizers.

During winter dormancy, growth stops, and leaves may turn yellow or fall off. Metabolic functions are weak, and water requirements are minimal, so watering should be avoided as much as possible.
