Pencil Cactus Firestick
Pencil Cactus Firestick, aka Euphorbia Tirucalli, has slender stems, resembling small pencils or sticks, grow from the base, and during the cooler months they glow superbly in vivid shades of pink, orange, and yellow when grown in bright sun. It needs very little care and can even be neglected if it is planted and situated correctly.
Pencil Cactus has milky white latex sap that is released when the plant is injured. This sap can severely irritate the skin and eyes to some. Please be very careful to not break any branches when moving this plant. Gloves and goggles are recommended when caring for them. Also, keep them out of reach from Children and Pets. See a doctor immediately when getting into the eyes.
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.
