The variegated Euphorbia is rare and highly sought after, due to its sculptural form and unusual soft green marbled colouring which gives it its name 'Ghost' Euphorbia.

Whilst it looks like a cactus, this beauty is actually a euphorbia. Therefore it has tiny thorns (and sometimes mini leaves), rather than spikes like a cactus. Along with being a real statement house plant, it is easy to care for and fast-growing, making it perfect for beginners or those with a more relaxed approach to plant care. 

_ Arrives in a 17cm nursery pot
_ Tolerant of neglect
_ Great for beginners or if you want a low maintenance houseplant
_ Statement plant that is sure to be eye catching

As a succulent, the variegated Euphoriba stores water in its trunk, meaning it can go some time between waterings. Therefore if it starts to look wrinkled, give it some water!

Milky White latex

If the 'skin' is broken, it’s can leak a milky white latex sap which is toxic, so keep away from curious children and pets!


This plant looks like a cactus but is actually a euphorbia. Instead of spikes like a catus it has thorns (which are equally prickly so watch out)!
