Pincushion Euphorbia

Pincushion Euphorbia


Plant: Pincushion Euphorbia [Euphorbia Pulvinata]

Vessel: Thrift store sourced green 16oz Mason Jar

Other ingredients: Succulent soil, foraged sea pebbles, perlite, peat moss.

About: One of the more playful looking succulents in the collection. New growth slowly transforms from pinkish-fuschia to purple to sandy, bone colored aged spines.


Watering: Water 1-2x per month or as soil dries out by adding water, letting it seep in until the upper part of the soil becomes visibly moist. A tiny bit of moisture at the bottom is okay, but the succulents should NEVER be sitting in wet swampy soil.

Keep in mind, the general advice for outdoor succulents in a cool to moderate climate is to water once per week in the summer and once per month in the winter allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, so as to mimic their native conditions of hot stormy summers and cold dry winters. Indoors, and in terrarium style planters, succulents will require even less water. When in doubt, always err on the side of less water.

Lighting & Temperature: Bright, indirect light is ideal. These are generally intended for indoor use, or in a protected, covered outdoor space. Harsh direct sunlight should be avoided. .

In these little mason jar homes, temperature should stay in the 70’s on average - basically, average indoor temperature.

Occasional swings up into the 80's and even down into the 50’s are absolutely fine. The main concern is that since these terrariums are in mason jars, care should be taken to ensure the roots aren’t exposed to adverse conditions. For instance, best not to leave it in a spot where the sun beats down on the glass all afternoon - don’t wanna steam those roots!

Warning: The milky Euphorbia sap is toxic to animals if ingested, and can irritate human flesh, eyes, etc.
