Caring for Your Euphorbia Plants
While most Euphorbias are relatively love maintenance, they do have some specific requirements:
Water: Unlike most succulents, euphorbia does not handle long periods of drought well. Your plants might need weekly watering during the summer. Water whenever the soil is dry several inches below the surface. Water deeply, but don't let the plants sit in wet soil, to avoid root rot.
Feeding: To help your Euphorbias get established and growing well, add some organic matter, like compost, or a balanced, organic fertilizer to the initial planting hole. If you are growing Euphorbia in a container or if your soil is poor, feed with a half-strength fertilizer monthly.
