Can tolerate moderate shade. Water regularly during the active growing season from March to September. Native to Madagascar. *No water should ever be allowed to stand around the roots. Keep the soil almost completely dry in winter. If plant turns reddish, this is a sign that the roots have not developed properly. ** All parts of Euphoria ooze a milky sap when damaged or cut. Contact with this sap may cause dermatitis in some people. Contact with eyes may cause temporary blindness which could last for several days.
