Euphorbia obesa, native to South Africa, is a small succulent with a ball-shaped, usually solitary stem that becomes cylindrical with age. The stem is grey-green marked with horizontal red-brown or purple bands. It grows up to eight inches tall and up to four inches in diameter, and almost always has eight slightly raised ribs. Tiny leaves fall off very soon after appearing. Male and female flowers are born on different plants. They are yellow and appear in the summer on branched stalks at the top of the stem. Grow in well-drained soil. From spring to fall, water when the top inch of soil feels dry. In the winter, give them just enough water to prevent from wilting.
*****All Euphorbia plants contain a poisonous sap that is very toxic if ingested and highly irritant if contacted with skin. Keep out of reach of pets and children. Handle with caution.
