Plant Details

The pencil cactus, or Euphorbia tirucalli - also commonly called milk bush due to its thick, white sap - is native to semi-arid tropical regions of Africa and India. Euphorbia tirucalli has many names throughout many languages and cultures due to its numerous uses in traditional medicine practices. Some people experience a rash when coming into contact with the sap, and this plant is toxic to animals, so take care when choosing its location.

This plant enjoys bright light and high temperature ranging from 65-­70°F. For more information, visit the Pencil Cactus Care Guide.

    SERVICE AREAS
    Greenery NYC delivers to the following locations:

    • Manhattan
    • Brooklyn
    • Queens

    Greenery NYC offers next day delivery for orders placed before 12pm Monday through Friday. We do not deliver on Sundays, so orders placed Saturday will go out the following Monday. In case of inclement weather, we will automatically reschedule deliveries for the next day we deem safe for the health of the plant, and will send out a notification email with the updated schedule.

    Someone must be available to receive the delivery. If no one will be there to receive the delivery, you may give us permission to leave the plant outside the delivery address in the checkout notes. However we cannot acquiesce this request during the winter or in severe weather. If no one is there to receive the delivery and we are unable to leave it behind, a re-delivery fee will be incurred. Cancelled orders will incur a 20% restocking fee once they have been prepared for delivery.

  • Light Requirements

    This is a high light plant. It will do best close to a south or east facing window, or directly against a north or west facing window.

    Please note that obstructions can cause a considerable decrease in the available light. Windows facing other buildings or alleys, especially on the bottom floors, are particularly susceptible.

    The surest way to see if your space receives the light required for a potted plant is to take a light meter reading. Please see our Lighting Guide for instructions.

  • Plant Care

    CARE LEVEL
    Easy.

    LIGHT REQUIREMENTS
    Prefers high light, but can tolerate bright indirect light spaces. This plant will not survive long term in low light conditions.

    WATER REQUIREMENTS
    Be sure to water your plant upon delivery. Pencil Cacti like dry soil and will rot when too much moisture is present. If the soil is fully dry throughout the pot, then the plant is ready for a drink. Moderation is key.

    HUMIDITY PREFERENCE
    Low humidity. Be careful applying too much moisture as the stalks can rot.
