Today we will look into some important Dos and Donts on Growing Pencil Cactus – like its care tips and propagation. Will try to make this video as short and to the point as possible, focusing only on the important points to remember in successfully growing this plant.
The Pencil Cactus is a beautiful succulent plant belonging to the Euphorbia family. The Botanical name is Euphorbia tirucalli. Its also known as aveloz, firestick plant, Indian tree spurge, naked lady, pencil tree and so on.
It is a beautiful ornamental houseplant and gives an interesting look because the stems are slender and look like branching pencils with no obvious leaves. Actually tiny leaves appear initially and then fall off.
Pencil Cactus is actually not a cactus. Cactus is a misnomer and its actually a succulent plant. If you want to learn basic of succulents and cacti, I have a separate playlist on succulents and cacti.
It is also called as Milk-bush because of the milky sap or the juice it secretes when its cut or damaged. So, Be careful while handling this plant, because this sap is toxic and can sometimes cause anaphylactic reactions – that means acute allergic reactions.
Care Tips of pencil cactus plant: Actually pencil cactus needs very little care.
