African Milk Tree cactus (Euphorbia trigona) is a tall, rugged, easy-care plant with thorns. It is grown as indoor houseplant and used as an attractive addition to cactus and succulent gardens in warmer areas. The leaves of the African Milk cactus are small and short-lived. They grow along the ridges that make up the corners of the plant’s rectangular stems. Thorns also emerge from these ridges.
The thorns grow in sets of two, and single leaves emerge from between them. When grown outdoors, the plant may produce small white or yellow flowers. Indoors, it is unlikely to bloom.
