Euphorbia trigona, also known as African Milk Tree, is a tall, columnar plant native to Central Africa. The "green" variant refers to the standard green-colored form of this plant. Euphorbia trigona is often mistaken for a cactus because of its appearance, but it's essential to remember it's a Euphorbia and has specific care needs.

Description:

  • Stems: Tall, upright, and ribbed with thorns along the ridges.

  • Leaves: Small, oval-shaped leaves that grow along the ribs.

  • Sap: Produces a milky latex when cut or damaged. This sap is irritating and can be toxic.

Care Guide:

  1. Light: Prefers bright light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, especially in the morning, but prolonged exposure to intense sun can scorch its leaves.

  2. Water: Euphorbia trigona is drought-tolerant. Allow the top inch or two of soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's vital to ensure you provide well-draining soil and don't let the plant sit in water.

  3. Soil: A well-draining cactus or succulent mix is ideal.

  4. Temperature: Prefers temperatures between 60°F (15°C) and 80°F (27°C). It's not frost-hardy, so if you're keeping it outdoors, ensure it's protected from temperatures below 50°F (10°C).

  5. Humidity: It's adaptable to most household humidity levels. No special humidity requirements are needed.

  6. Feeding: During the growing season (spring and summer), you can feed the plant once every 4-6 weeks with a diluted cactus or succulent fertilizer.

  7. Pruning: While not strictly necessary, you can prune to shape the plant or remove any unwanted growth. Always wear gloves, and be cautious of the milky sap when making cuts.

  8. Pests: Like many succulents and cacti, watch for pests such as mealybugs and spider mites. If detected, treat promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

  9. Propagation: Euphorbia trigona can be propagated from cuttings. Allow the cut end to callus over for a few days before planting in a well-draining soil. Remember to wear gloves and be cautious when handling cuttings because of the irritating sap.

  10. Caution: The milky sap of Euphorbia trigona is toxic and can cause skin irritation. It's essential to keep it away from pets and children and to wear gloves if you're handling or pruning the plant.

Euphorbia trigona is a relatively easy-care plant when you consider its basic needs. As with many Euphorbias, the primary concern is often overwatering, so ensure the plant's soil dries appropriately between waterings.
