The massive-sized Euphorbia ammak variegata goes by the common name Candelabra Spurge or African Candelabra. It is native to Saudi Arabia and Yemen with the capacity to grow up to 15 to 20 feet in height. Belonging to the Euphorbiaceae family, the succulent has a short trunk and upright branches. The plant is dormant in winter.

Growth Rate

If the Candelabra Spurge is provided with an ideal environment for growth, its growth rate will be rapid. Its growing season is summer and spring.

Flowering

During the summer season, the plant will begin by producing green capsules. These will then bloom into pale white and green colored flowers.

Watering and Feeding

Water the plant every week during the summers and once a month in winters. To feed the African Candelabra plant, use a light fertilizer once a month only in summer. Give half a dose.

Soil

To create a soil mix on your own, mix clay, grit, pumice, and sand. If you want to buy a potting mix, make sure you buy one that is well-drained and sandy.

Hardiness

Belonging to a hardiness zone of 9b to 11b, the plant is hardy and can endure the driest of conditions. Its recommended temperature is 16°C to 29°C.

Light

Euphorbia ammak thrives on ample direct sunlight, especially during cultivation. Since its native environment is the desert, the succulent prefers bright light and warm temperatures.

Propagation

Use cuttings for propagation. Lay the plant down horizontally, and use a sharp knife to cut where the branch begins. Rinse the cutting, allow it to dry, and then plant.

Remember to wash your hands with both soap and water before touching your face or eyes. This is because the succulent contains a white sap that may irritate your eyes.
