Euphorbia stellata

Decatur, GA

Here is a euphorbia that makes a caudex. I repotted this and lifted a lot of the stem above ground. Its another tiny one, about 2 inches above ground. Euphorbias are very touchy about water/heat - too dry, too wet, too hot and wet, too hot and dry - it seems any combination can cause them to collapse. It can be touch-and-go keeping them from rotting. I have lost more than I like to think about. And then in the winter, Nov-March they can sit dry and leafless without a problem.
Anyone else try Euphorbias much?

I grow quite a few Euphorbias for the Garden where I volunteer, some w/caudexes and some without. I pretty much follow this website when it comes to getting questions answered about them:

Thanks faeden,
I use that site a lot for info and ID.
Here is another European site that has information with great pictures of specimens. I just checked and for some reason their online sales aren't available right now. When it is they include a lot of information about culture for individual plants . Check them later when they have plants for sale. Now the pictures in their gallery are pretty darn good.

You're welcome. And thank YOU for the Exotica link. I like their pictures! Doubtful I'll ever order from them (too expensive) but as you said, great for reference.
