Euphorbia Ingens Marmorata
Euphorbia Ingens Marmorata, commonly known as the Marble Tree or Candelabra Tree, is a succulent plant that belongs to the family Euphorbiaceae. It is native to South Africa and Namibia, where it is found in arid regions with well-draining soils.
Euphorbia Ingens Marmorata requires relatively low maintenance. Here are some care tips:
1) Light: It prefers bright, indirect sunlight and can tolerate partial shade. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight for extended periods, as it may cause sunburn on the leaves.
2) Temperature: It is relatively tolerant of temperature fluctuations and can thrive in a wide range of temperatures between 10-30 degrees Celsius (50-86 degrees Fahrenheit).
3) Watering: Allow the soil to dry out between waterings, as Euphorbia Ingens Marmorata is adapted to arid conditions and can suffer from root rot if over-watered. Avoid getting water on the leaves, as it may cause spots or damage.
4) Soil: Well-draining soil mix, such as cactus or succulent mix, is ideal for Euphorbia Ingens Marmorata. Avoid using heavy or clayey soils that can retain excess moisture.
5) Fertilizer: Fertilize sparingly with a balanced, diluted succulent fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer) to promote healthy growth.
Use: Euphorbia Ingens Marmorata is often grown as an ornamental plant for its unique, tree-like appearance with multiple branches arranged in a candelabra-like form. It can be used as a striking focal point in desert-themed or succulent gardens, or as an interesting addition to indoor plant collections.
