The African Milk Tree is a member of the genus Euphorbia part of the family Euphorbaceae. All of these plants exude a poisonous white sap when cut or broken.
For this reason, it’s a good idea to keep them out of the reach of kids and pets and to keep your skin and eyes well-protected when pruning, repotting or otherwise handling the euphorbia cactus.
The sap can cause serious skin and eye irritation on contact, as well as severe gastric distress if ingested.
Light: Full sun to bright, indirect light.
Water: Allow soil to become completely dry before watering.
Soil: Needs well-draining soil and a pot with proper drainage.
