It is also called "Miniature Saguaro"; in Russia it is known as "Молочай аэругиноза" - "Aeruginosa milk carrier" for the milky liquid inside the plant. "Aeruginosa" means "verdigris", so this name was given, due to the green color of the stems and the copper-colored thorns. It is a succulent dwarf plant, very branched and characterized by a small underground caudex, in which it stores water to survive during drought periods. With the prolonged exposure to the direct sun it becomes more robust and the thorns take on a beautiful intense red-bordeaux color. In fact, if the thorns are long, thin and of a grayish color, this is the sign that the plant needs more light.

Plant care:

It requires a lot of light throughout the year, however, avoid direct sunlight especially during the hottest hours of the day.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 8 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately but only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water it once a week in spring and summer, reduce watering to once every two months in autumn, and to suspend it completely in winter.

The perfect soil is a highly draining and porous one, for example a mixture of peat and pumice so that it does not stagnate the water.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
