Euphorbia Lactea Alba
Euphorbia lactea alba also known as "Grey or White Ghost", rootfast! from my own succulent collection & propagation (rejuvenation of my mother plant); a head cuttings which will sprout several times; a rarity that is difficult to propagate; planted in a well-drained, self-mixed organic substrate, the plant should not be repotted until next year, not over-fertilised, therefore robust & top healthy (100% organic quality before quantity!), very slow growing, not hardy, beautiful grey-milk-white discolouration - the new shoots can partly become full milk-white; for a sunny/bright location; important!!!-avoid stagnant moisture (otherwise the roots will rot and the plant will be destroyed); enjoy 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.
