Neobuxbaumia - Euphorbioides


Neobuxbaumia euphorbioides is a grey green very tall but relatively thin rarely if ever branching columnar cactus that can grow up to 15 cm in diameter and to a height of about 7 m, but is usually shorter. As ages, spines tend to fall out and plant somewhat resembles a large columnar euphorbia (spurge) when not in bloom, hence the specific name. It appreciates abundant water during the summer and, during it's growing period but allow to dry fully before watering again, light shade when young, full sun later. In mild climate they can be grown in rock gardens in full sun, in dry and sandy soils.
