Re: Help with some euphorbia cuttings

Looks like Euphorbia deightonii. I have had two of them from different sources. They are robust, fast growing and very attractive plants.

Re: Looks a bit like e. knuthii, but not quite

Definitely not knuthii. Looks just like a rooted cutting of Euphorbia sekukuniensis. This one usually grows like a branch rather than a tree from rooted cuttings unless drastic cultivation steps are taken. Mine finally started growing like a tree after the main cutting died. Grandidens is another go...

Re: What Is This Euphorbia?

The number of sides can vary Significantly depending on the age of the plant. The main stalk is often different than branches or pups. It is useful with helping to identify an euphorbia along with spination, overall growth character and flower appearance but can lead you astray if used by itself.

Re: Please help ID these Euphorbias

I would guess E. anoplia (Tanzanian zipper plant) . . . Which is often found at big box stores and I believe is actually a hybrid rather than a true species.

Re: Pachypodium Bispinosum ???

Look at lots of photos of them. They are not a neat, tidy plant. I grow mine in Western New York and my care instructions would be more on how to keep them alive the eight months a year I have them inside. I rarely even think of trimming them back here as it leaves them open to suddenly rotting. You...

Re: Pachypodium Baronii v. windsorii

I purchased several over the years from a company in the US called Out of Africa. I have a very large P. baronii blooming presently.

Re: Pachypodium Bispinosum ???

My guess would be Pachypodium saundersii, but you need to see it bloom in addition to closely examining the spination. P. saundersii has white blooms. P. bispinosum has lovely pink blooms. Neither are particularly rare. Mine are dormant from October through mid May, but I live in western New York St...

Re: Succulent Identification

What is the diameter and height of this plant? Has it ever bloomed? It really reminds me of an E. horrida, but the shape is odd. They can extremely variable. My E. horrida's have deep maroon flowers with spines very much like those in your photo. The spines also remind me of E. cereifomis and A bit ...

Re: Succulent Identification

Definitely an Euphorbia, although badly cared for at some point. Your third photo looks as if you have turned around this problem. It is hard to make an I.D. at this point. It is going to need to grow some more and develope some spines to aid in this. Ideally the plant would send out some more pups ...

Re: Unknown 7 of 7

You will have to wait and see the bloom for a better chance at nailing the ID. Even with the bloom, Hoodias can be promiscuous and hybrids are not unusual.
