A cold blast of air, and suddenly you have stunning Red Firesticks! The Euphorbia Tirucalli Firesticks or Pencil Cactus plants hail from Africa, where it is typically a green stick plant, but once the cold nights come, it turns a fire red, making it an amazing seasonal changing Cactus to own. The plants can get very large if planted directly in the ground but can be controlled with regular trimming in a planter pot.
This is a fast-growing plant, and please be cautious when cutting as the sap is toxic and can irritate the skin; it's not pet friendly only if ingested.
Available in the following packaging based on your preference:
Nursery Pot - Standard plastic 2-inch or 4-inch planter pot that can be placed inside a larger pot or left as is until it outgrows it.
Marie Terracotta Planter - 4.5" Terracotta planter with matching saucer for drainage.
