Pencil Cactus ‘Firesticks’- Euphorbia tirucalli  


Cacti come in so many shapes and sizes. This is one of the more unusual ones! The Pencil Cactus gets its name because… well, it looks like a bunch of pencils! 

Be careful of its milky sap, as that, can be toxic (not a pet-friendly plant). It likes sunny spots, so a southern windowsill is best. Make sure you use cactus soil and only water it a few times a month. When watering, thoroughly saturate the soil until it drains out of the bottom of the pot.
