Euphorbia obesa...New to the ginger jungle and we just love them! Euphorbia obesa also know as the baseball succulent due to his plump cylindrical shape they have the most incredible patterns and coloring as I am sure you can tell from our images. They can grow up to 30 cm tall and 10 cm in diameter! The specific name "obesa" derives from the Latin "obesus," meaning " fat, stout or plump" and refers to the fleshy rounded cute! Colours with vary.


Care: Light - The Euphorbia obesa loves the sun, so perfect if you have a sunny window seal or office desk they can work okay in a more shaded spot but they won't thrive. These can survive droughts and take very little care, however, to keep him happy I would water once the soil is completely dry if you have him in a sunny spot he will dry out quite quickly so water around 7-10 day depend on heat and cut right back in the winter months. 


Other information:

Size: Pot Diameter 8.5cm 

Toxicity: Toxic to pets and humans

Difficulty: Easy peasy

Feeding: General, the majority of houseplants should be fed every 2nd watering during the growing season (Spring and Summer), for me, it's about which every 14 days. In autumn and winter, I feed less, as indoor plants will require fewer nutrients.
