Pencil Plant


Euphorbia tirucalli

Pencil plant, or Milkbush, is a succulent native to arid South Africa and India. It has a milky white sap that can be strongly irritating to some people, and should be washed off as soon as possible if you get any on you. It is heat and drought resistant, but does not tolerate temperatures below 25 degrees, so is often used as a very hardy houseplant.
