The African Milk Tree is a cactus style succulent, and is a member of the succulent group of the Euphorbia family, which is one of the largest families in the plant kingdom. The Trigona is distinctive due to the leaves that grow along the edges of its upright stems. This plant can essentially be treated as a cactus and is a large, branching specimen that is a perfect statement plant for any home.
The added bonus of this succulent is how easy it is to care for. It is best placed in the brightest spot available so long as it is not in direct sunlight, as this can lead to scorching. As for any cactus, water regularly throughout the growing season, and ensure that the compost is free draining and the roots never sit in water. Allow compost to dry out completely between waters. This plant needs very little water during the winter months.
