Cresting!


Hi,
I hope you can help. I was given a Euphorbia Lactea Crested that has been grafted, for Valentine Day.

It was a stone container with no drainage holes, and I notice it was wet. I didn’t water until I though the soil was dry.

Then I start notice that the grafted part, the leaves were turning yellow and falling off. Help

Charlotte,
Losing the leaves on the rootstock plant is not a big deal with these crests. They’re nice to have, but not necessary. However, a pot with drainage is necessary. I recommend watering very little until spring starts, whenever that may be for you, and then repotting into a pot with drainage, using a fast-draining cactus and succulent mix.
Enjoy, and send us a picture!
Peter
