Pencil Cactus

This product is unavailable

Native to South Africa and India, this unique plant is a great low maintenance choice for people new to caring for plants. Despite its name, this plant is actually not a cactus. It is a type of Euphorbia, and is actually more closely related to poinsettias than cacti! It is named for its cactus-like look, and like cacti will thrive in bright, direct light with minimal watering. It has bright, lime green foliage with a reddish tinge that will get even more pronounced with bright light, making it a great colourful addition to your plant collection!


Plant height approximately 2.5' (10" pot size)

Plant height approximately 2' (8" pot size)

  • While the diameter of the plant’s pot (10") is consistent, the overall height and width will vary from plant to plant and depends on nature itself.
