Euphorbia lactea is only hardy to maybe 5° C and most grow it either in pots (excellent potted plant) or plant it in very protected locations.

Euphorbia lactea being from a tropical climate, it is one of the few columnar Euphorbias that do exceptionally well in very wet, humid climates.

It need  bright light to partial shade for best appearance (but the variegated forms do best if protected from strong sunshine in the hottest hours of the day).

It responds well to warmth, with its active growth period in the late spring and summer months.

Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch during active growing season (more than once a week during hot weather)

In the winter months, waterigs should be suspended or restricted to once over the winter.

The most common failure in growing this plant is over watering, especially during the winter months.

Likes porous soil with adequate drainage.

Succulent Euphorbias in greenhouses apparently are seldom affected by fungous diseases.
