Euphorbia Pseudocactus approx 4 inch plant shipped in a 6.5cm pot
Similar in size and shape to the ones in the photos
Euphorbia pseudocactus is a multi-branched, dwarf-stemmed succulent shrub that, as its name suggests, resembles a cactus.
The stems often have distinctive yellow V-shaped markings.
Plants eventually form large mounded clumps brancing from the base and above, 60-120 cm tall and up to 2 m in diameter.
Acutely-angled, irregular, constricted in broad, twisted, obovate to triangular segments about 5-15 cm long, which usually represents a year of growth.
These segments are green of varying shades, conspicuously and ornamentally decorated with horizontal or "U" shaped grey-yellow or greenish-yellow markings. The difference in colour and markings has lead to the introduction of invalid names based purely on colour. On cross section the segments have very thin walls and irregular diameter varying from 2,5 to 7 cm.
3 to 5 (but usually 4) angular with wavy edges and sinuate teeth up to 1.5 cm apart.
Spines: Stout 5-12 mm long joined in a horny margin. This margin is usually a white/grey, as are the spines. These often have a dark brown or black tip.
Leaves only appear briefly, less then 3 mm at the very tips of the growing canters only, briefly in summer.
Inflorescences (cymes):1-3 in an horizontal line from the "flowering eyes", mid-way between each set of spines, simple. Peduncles 2 mm.
Up to 7 mm across. Nectar glands oblong, yellow and touching.
Subsessile, acutely lobed, to 14 mm across.
Subglobose, 3 mm in diameter smooth.
