Euphorbia poissonii Family: Euphorbiaceae. A nice specimen of this rarely seen species from Nigeria. This species combines the best of the leafy, stemmed species of Euphorbia with the fat succulent species. The stem is fat and white with thick (but not too sharp) spines. Over time the stem will get taller and taller and will branch from the base and the stems themselves. The leaves are long, wavy and very thick. The leaves form in the spring and summer and the plant grows until fall. In the fall it goes dormant and drops the leaves. Similar care to the other tropical Euphorbia species. Normal succulent watering in summer, keep dry in winter when it drops its leaves. Protect from frost. In fact, this species prefers to stay above 50 degrees.

Important Shipping Information
- PLANTS ARE SHIPPED BARE ROOT If you want me to send them in pots send me a message to discuss. Extra charges due to increased shipping costs will apply.
- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.
- No Delayed Shipping (eBay only) Once you pay I have to (and WILL) ship within 3 business days or eBay will lower my seller rating. I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
- Winter Shipping If you live in a cold climate consider including a 96 hour heat pack in your order during the cold months. I have them as a listing. Just add it to your order. If you don’t see them just message me.
