Full Size Euphorbia Drupifera
Please don't try to grab this plant by the stalk! Tiny, almost completely hidden spikes that will bring you to your knees. At first glance, the plant looks just like a regular foliage plant, but wait, it's actually a type of Euphorbia which is commonly mispronounced as cactus.
The Drupiferas and many types of Euphorbia are very easy to care for, provided you have a very bright spot for the plant. The more light the better, perferably a spot with direct sun.
Euphorbia is actually a very large genus of plants with more than 2,000 species, and growers commonly refer to plants in the genus as euphorbia or spurge.
It is also classified as poisonous, so wear gloves while handling and keep away from small children and pets.

EUPHORBIA DRUPIFERA CARE
Euphorbia are best located in a bright room near a sunny window, but not directly in the sun's rays. If the sun has to be directly on the plant, make sure the plant is only receiving morning or evening sun.
Water the plant when the first 3 inches of the soil is dry, that's about every 3 weeks depending on your indoor environment. This plant, like a cactus, is a pro at tolerating drought. If you have a vessel large enough, you can give the plant a water bath and let the soil soak up all the water it needs. Be sure to completely drain the pot after — too much water left in the soil for too long will create root rot. If you're worried, signs of under-watering include a shriveled stem, yellow leaves, little to no growth, and dry, crispy patches forming on the leaf edges.
The overall size of Euphorbia plants can range from 1 - 6 feet in height. The ultimate size will take between 8 - 10 years to achieve when repotted every two or three years.
