The Euphorbia Ingen is a species of plant in the genus Euphorbia and the family Euphorbiaceae. Across the world, the Ingen is popularly known as the Candelabra Tree or Naboom. The Euphorbia Ingen can look similar to its close relatives, and one same plant can look remarkably different from youth to maturity. We find it fascinating comparing varieties if this species depending on where in the world their seeds were imported to and grown. Our current stock, growing up to 45cm each season, becomes completely spineless with age, forming stunning black boarders down each ridge-line, caused by stubborn pollen residue.
Native to dry areas of Africa, this Euphorbia has adapted to the Australian climate nicely. Although it is rare to come by, it has proven to flourish throughout costal areas of Australia. Planted in the ground, it is surprising how large this tree can become, growing over 3 metres tall if left unpruned. The flowers for this species form as small yellow bouquets, typically found in areas of new growth in maturer plants.
The Euphirbia Ingen is great for restaurants and high traffic areas of the home. Although this plant is great around children and pets, as they can be spineless, it is important to note that the Euphorbia Ingen consists of a milky latex sap, a sap which should not be ingested and can cause serious irritation to your skin and eyes. Please wash your hands with soap if you get the sap on your skin and avoid rubbing your eyes.
