$129.99

Euphorbia tirucalli 'Rosea', commonly known as Firestick Plant or Red Pencil Tree, is a striking succulent shrub known for its pencil-thin, cylindrical branches that turn vibrant shades of red, orange, and pink in response to sunlight and stress. Here are some care tips for Euphorbia tirucalli 'Rosea':

1. Light: Provide bright, indirect light for your Firestick Plant. It thrives in full sun outdoors but should be gradually acclimated to direct sunlight to prevent sunburn. Indoors, place it near a south-facing window where it can receive several hours of sunlight daily.

2. Watering: Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Euphorbia tirucalli 'Rosea' is drought-tolerant and prefers dry conditions. Water sparingly, especially during the winter months, to prevent root rot. Ensure the pot has excellent drainage.

3. Temperature: Euphorbia tirucalli 'Rosea' prefers warm temperatures between 65-85°F (18-29°C). It is not frost-tolerant and should be protected from temperatures below 50°F (10°C).

4. Soil: Use a well-draining cactus or succulent potting mix. You can also mix regular potting soil with sand or perlite to improve drainage.

5. Fertilizing: Feed your Firestick Plant with a diluted, balanced liquid fertilizer once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing during fall and winter when the plant is dormant.

6. Pruning: Minimal pruning is required for Euphorbia tirucalli 'Rosea'. Remove any dead or damaged branches with clean, sharp pruning shears to maintain its shape.

7. Propagation: Propagate Firestick Plants from stem cuttings. Allow the cuttings to callous for a few days, then plant them in a well-draining potting mix. Water sparingly until roots develop.

8. Toxicity: Handle Euphorbia tirucalli 'Rosea' with care as it produces a milky sap that can be irritating to the skin and toxic if ingested. Wear gloves when pruning or handling the plant.

9. Pests: Firestick Plants are generally resistant to pests but may occasionally attract spider mites or mealybugs. Inspect regularly and treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

Euphorbia tirucalli 'Rosea' is a stunning addition to succulent gardens, containers, or as a striking accent plant indoors. With its unique appearance and minimal care requirements, it can thrive and add vibrant color to your living space.
