  • The African Milk Tree & Quartz Pot Story

    Where is it from?
    It is native to West Africa.

    Who is the African Milk Tree & Quartz Pot? 
    Don't let the leaves mislead you, it's NOT actually a cactus! It is drought tolerant and can handle long periods without water. The stems have three wing-like angles and carry short, sharp spines as well as leaves.

    Given the right conditions, it can grow into an impressive tree. As a succulent, this plant will need very little watering, especially during winter, and likes a bright spot.

    Good For You!
    The unique nature of this plant and the beautiful soft, pink of the quartz pot will bring a sense of calm and steadiness to your home.

    Is the African Milk Tree & Quartz Pot the right plant for me?

    The Africa Milk Tree can live a long life if properly cared for. It does require a high amount of light to thrive. We suggest placing it beside a large window in your living room. It does not require any pruning but does thrive with the occasional dusting to maintain the beauty of its ruby leaves. With a little love and care, this plant will be your best friend for many years to come!

    Pet Friendly: This beautiful cactus is not pet-friendly.

    Location Suggestions: It looks amazing in a corner of a living room with bright light! The large nature of the plant deserves to be shown off.

    Care Instructions

    Light

    I like a lot of light, and will happily sit in direct sun, unlike a lot of other varieties.

    Water

    I can't take too much moisture, so wait until my soil is completely dry before watering me.

    Temperature

    I don't like the cold and should be kept above 13°C.

    Feeding

    Give me some feed once or twice during the warmer months. An all-purpose, or succulent-specific fertilizer will do the trick.

    Toxicity

    Keep me away from pets and children.

    Grooming

    I don't need any pruning but would like the occasional dust to maintain the beauty of my ruby leaves.

    Care

    Like a tree, I can live for a very long time so take good care of me.
