Euphorbia Lactea Alba
Euphorbia lactea alba also known as "Grey or White Ghost", rootfast! from our own succulent collection; in a clay pot; a rarity that is difficult to propagate; planted in a well-drained, self-mixed organic substrate, the plant should only be repotted in 3-4 years, not overfertilised, therefore robust & top healthy, very slow growing (100% organic quality before quantity!), not hardy. ), not hardy, beautiful grey-milk-white discolouration - the new shoots are partly full of milk-white (but grow very slowly because of this); for a sunny/bright location, no waterlogging, please!; much joy with your new Euphorbia lactea alba!
Did you know that?
The botanical name Euphorbia is derived from Euphorbos, the Greek physician from the 1st century AD. In 1753, the botanist and taxonomist Carl Linnaeus gave the entire genus the name Euphorbia in honour of this doctor.
And yes, that's right, euphorbias are not cacti, even though many of them look pretty much like a cactus.
