Like most succulents, Coral Cactus requires large amounts of sunlight but should not be exposed to direct sunlight for long periods, as it can damage the leaves and branches, especially during the intense heat of the day. … Also, it’s important to turn your Coral Cactus regularly.
Just so, how much light does a coral cactus need?
Full, direct sun to partial shade. This plant is actually two plants in one: both are Euphorbias, but the straight green base and the top ‘coral’ part actually originate from two totally different plants, which have been grafted together by hand, and live quite happily like that.
Also question is, how long does it take coral cactus to grow?
When thriving, they can grow as tall as 20 inches (or a bit more). The coral cactus lifespan goes anywhere from a few years to several decades, so it may take a few years to reach that height. The surprising part, however, is that coral cactus is poisonous to cats.
How do I know when my coral cactus needs water?
Begin by checking the soil moisture. If it’s dry in the top two to four inches of your soil, the plant is probably thirsty. Water the soil, but not the plant directly, until water runs out of the pot’s base. If your coral cactus looks droopy or wilted, it’s probably under-watered.
Euphorbia Lactea is commonly known as the Coral Cactus, Candelabrum Tree, Candelabra Cactus, Candelabra Plant, Dragon Bones, and is a coral succulent plant, mostly found in India. It can grow up to 16 feet if planted in an outdoor environment, but for indoors, it only grows 2 feet tall.
Fertilizer: Once in the Spring, Summer, Fall, only. Any balanced plant fertilizer works. Repotting: You’ll want to repot soon as your Coral Cactus does not have drainage holes.
It has some drought tolerance once established but performs best with regular watering in a full sun situation. In cool zones, plant the specimen in a large container with a gritty houseplant soil. In-ground plants can tolerate rocky or sandy soil. Container plants should have water reduced in winter.
