Euphorbia Meloformis 'Variegata' also known as Variegated Melon Spurge.

 

This rarely available specimen is incredibly eye-catching. It's a dwarf succulent that eventually grows to approximately 12cm diameter, with 8-12 ribs. It's usually solitary but occasionally offsets at the base. 

 

Variegated plants occur when something has gone wrong with the cellular structure of the leaf or stem growth tip of the plant. It causes attractive and often irregular yellow/white leaf  and/or stem patterns. They grow slower and are generally smaller than non-variegates of the same species and are often more sensitive to strong sunshine so prefer to be slightly more shaded. Variegated plants are highly desirable and can be quite expensive. 

 

Euphorbias are easy to care for. Given the right planting medium and sufficient sunlight, they will thrive on neglect. Water when the soil is dry in the Spring/Summer. Cut right back on watering during winter. 

 

*Euphorbias are known to give off a milky sap which is toxic and causes skin irritation, so handle with care and keep away from children and pets.*

 

The pot size is 6.5cm.
