Buy a beautiful African Milk Tree to bring attractive style and architecture to the home or give it as a gift for birthdays or other occasions. The interesting plant has an erect growth habit with delicate leaves and spiky thorns that grow along its upright stems.

The indoor African Milk Tree (or Euphorbia trigona) gets its name from the milky white sap that it produces. Don’t be fooled by its spiny thorns, while this plant may look like a cactus it’s actually a succulent. This plant thrives in bright light and can even take some direct sun as long as it doesn’t get scorched.
