Succulent Euphorbia native to the Canary Islands and Madeira occur in the lower succulent zone at between sea level to 800m, respectively the laurel forest. Suited for any well drained, rocky soil in a sunny spot in summer. Keep plants in winter at a minimum of some 12°C, keep soil almost completely dry, Euphorbia mellifera and Euphorbia lambii (both from the moist laurel forest) require different conditions (see below).
Sow flat in any well drained, rather sandy or rocky soil at a minimum of some 15°C all year long. Keep pots in a sunny spot. Seeds germinate very irregularly over a longer period, some may germinate within one week after potting, and others may need up to six months. Transplant in early spring as soon as seedlings are strong enough.
Note: All parts are poisonous if ingested, the milk sap may cause severe skin irritations and eye burns !
