Euphorbia milii 'Dwarf Apache' - Crown of Thorns-

Regular Price: $6.99 | $4.49

Quantity Available: 6

Euphorbia milii ‘Dwarf Apache’ is a smaller version of the popular Madagascar native commonly called Crown of Thorns.  Although they are technically a type of succulent, they require growing conditions more like tropical foliage than the typical succulents or cacti.  They have a main, thorny stem that tends to bush out and grow other side branches, usually forming at or near the soil line with the main base.  Their foliage can be described as broad leaf evergreen.  The genus Euphorbia is one of the largest and most varied of all plants and contains over 2,000 species which range in form and growing habit from groundcovers to trees that are 70+ feet tall.  As with most Euphorbias, this plant can excrete a milky sap that can cause skin irritation.  Growing about 5-6 feet tall, the Crown of Thorns has become a very popular house plant also due to the many seasonal pink-red blossoms that it produces.         

 

USDA Hardiness Zones 9-11

 

Container Gardens/Terrariums/Houseplant:

While this plant is most commonly used as a houseplant, in which it is a great candidate, it is not recommended for use in container gardens due to its large, tall growing size.    

 

Josh's Frogs offers a wide variety of glass terrariums, container garden soils, drainage layers and other supplies for all of your indoor gardening needs.

 

Vivariums/Animal Terrariums:

Due to its thorns and succulent nature, it is not recommended for vivariums.  It appreciates drying out between waterings which is not ideal in a vivarium environment.

 

As good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Live plants from Josh's Frogs are treated only with products that are OMRI Listed© for use in organic production. Live plants may vary in color, size and appearance.

 

ALL PLANTS ARE SHIPPED IN POTS WITH SOIL OR OTHER MEDIA UNLESS IT IS DEEMED NECESSARY TO SHIP BARE ROOT

The plant pictured is in a 2.5" pot.
