Description: Euphorbia 'Sausage Spurge', scientifically known as Euphorbia abdelkuri, is an intriguing succulent admired for its unique, elongated, sausage-like stems. The bluish-green stems grow in a clustered manner, creating a striking and unusual appearance. Native to the island of Abd al Kuri, near Yemen, this hardy plant thrives in various indoor settings, adding a touch of exotic charm and curiosity to any space. Euphorbia 'Sausage Spurge' typically grows up to 12-24 inches tall and wide, making it an excellent choice for adding texture and interest to homes and offices.

Care Instructions:


  • Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate some direct sunlight. Ensure it receives plenty of light to maintain its vibrant color. Avoid prolonged exposure to intense afternoon sun, which can scorch the stems.


  • Water thoroughly when the soil is completely dry. Euphorbia 'Sausage Spurge' is drought-tolerant and prefers infrequent watering. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so ensure good drainage.


  • Thrives in low to moderate humidity environments. This succulent is well-suited for dry indoor air and does not require additional humidity.


  • Prefers temperatures between 60°F and 80°F (16°C - 27°C). Protect from cold drafts and temperatures below 50°F (10°C).


  • Use a well-draining cactus or succulent potting mix. Adding sand or perlite to regular potting soil can improve drainage and prevent root rot.


  • Feed with a diluted, balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing in the fall and winter when the plant is dormant.


  • Pruning is generally not necessary, but you can remove any dead or damaged stems to maintain appearance and encourage new growth. Use caution, as Euphorbia sap can be irritating to the skin.
