Euphorbia Ingens Succulent Plant is a thorny cactus-like plant which is considered as a good luck indoor plant. Like cactus, it has no leaves, but this plant features segmented arms growing from a single trunk, with bright yellow blossoms on the tips of its branches in late spring. This slow-growing Spiny evergreen succulent plant is very easy to care. Place the euphorbia plant in a location that receives direct sunlight and stays consistently warm and it needs little water to nourish. Grow it out of reach for both children and pets, because this is poisonous and the milky latex can cause blisters on the skin and even blindness if it touches the eyes.
