Euphorbia Decaryi, aka Euphorbia Decaryi Guillaumin (or Zombie Palm Tree as we like to say), is a quirky little succulent shrub with unusual, thick, wrinkly leaves and root-like stems. These fleshy stems spread along the ground in a creeping habit, eventually shooting out bunches of leaves. New stems can develop as well, popping out of the soil when you least expect it!
They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.
They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
They like the soil to be completely dry before the next watering. This can take up to 4 weeks in an average home environment but it will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions. For them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. wrinkly or soft leaves). Water a little more often in the warmer months.
Their humidity requirement is low, so do not mist them or put them in a terrarium.
They will typically flower at some point indoors so be prepared for the daintiest, yellow-green or red flowers at some point. If your plant is kept in very bright light, it may need to be watered a little more frequently to support its growth throughout the spring and summer months.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
