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.

African Milk Tree & Quartz Pot Care Guide

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.

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.
