Our Price:


The Euphorbia platyclada is often known as the Dead Stick Plant, and looks as if someone gathered a bunch of twigs and stuck it in soil. Hailing from Madagascar, it is perfect for that friend of yours who really loves plants, but can’t seem to keep them around. Because, well, now they can’t tell if it’s alive or not, and honestly, it doesn’t matter.

Quick Care Guide

Water Sparingly

This plant prefers a drier growing medium. Check that the growing medium is almost fully dry, then water thoroughly. The pot should feel significantly lighter than usual.

Medium Light

This plant will benefit from being in a location with bright, indirect light. Depending on your conditions, a window-lit spot or one that offers a few hours of direct morning sunlight will be appreciated.

Low Humidity

This plant will fare decently in normal household humidity (50 – 60%) but will benefit from higher humidity levels.

Problems & Maintenance

This plant is prone to root mealies and mealybugs. Check the plant regularly to diagnose any leaf drop or generally poor outlook.

Suitable for Indoors

This is a plant that will live happily indoors so long it is given a spot with strong sunlight. It can also be kept outdoors!

Toxicity Level 2

This plant is moderately poisonous. Eating parts of it may result in vomiting, diarrhoea, stomach pains, skin irritations, and breathing difficulties. Keep away from pets and children.
