The stunning Euphorbia Trigona is an eye-catching houseplant that is as easy to care for as it is beautiful. Given the correct care, the Euphorbia will grow quickly and provide you with a tall, branching aesthetic for years to come. 

The Trigona 'Rubra' has a gorgeous reddish hue and long, triangular stems with three ridges. The color of the plant can fade or deeper depending on the amount of light it receives (lower light will result in a washed out color.) Along the ridges, the plant will produce thorns and leaves. With proper care, the leaves will last for 1-2 growing seasons; with improper care, the plant will shed its leaves first. 

Despite its thorny appearance, the Euphorbia is actually more closely related to succulents than cacti. As such, it should be treated with a few slight differences from a typical cactus. Aim to provide a couple hours of direct sunlight each day but try to avoid full sun all day, as it can burn the plant. Allow the plant to dry out halfway between watering, and decrease watering slightly in the winter.
