RED Euphorbia Tirucalli also known as  STICKS on FIRE is native to the Congo and Zanzibar a very BIZARRE looking plant.

This is a new introduction to the old favorite Green Pencil cactus. The Sticks on Fire thrives as a house plant in the driest atmospheres; needs all the light you can give it, routine soil water and feeding. If the stems are broken or cut it will bleed a milky sap. Be careful the milky sap is toxic/poisonous.

Plant Red Euphorbia Tirucalli  out of doors in mild winter areas or indoors in a pot in the brightest spot you can find for it.  It is a tree or large shrub to a possible 30 ft. . tall in open ground but is usually much smaller.

Single or multiple trunks support a tangle of light pink to bright Red, pencil thick, succulent branches with no sigh of a leaf.  The flowers unimportant.  The Sticks on Fire casts a Striking  pattern of silhouette or shadow.

We are offering a full plant they are well branched about 8 to 10 inches tall and about  4 inches wide.
