I started out with two small seedlings from a colleague at work..I brought it home and ignored it for about a week, my husband who loves to work with his hands nourished the two Euphorbia, now I have over thirty plants of three colors..and two sizes, the Hybrid and the miniture ones....When visitors come to my house they would give me compliments of how these gorgeous flowers make my home look comfy and cozy..Now I want to learn more on how i can nurture them...
