Anyone familiar or own a euphorbia neohumbertii? I used it as my profile picture and love that cactus.

Yes, WELCOME! Hurray!
I've never seen one of those either. Are the gouges smooth with the rest of the green surface or are they just different area of pigmentation or a result of something fallen off? Confused

Hello Thimblecactus1 Welcome!

That looks like a pretty prickly one! Unfortunately I do not grow that one. However from the few euphorbia succulents that I do have, I notice they do not like being exposed to too much cold, keep them dry in winter. Loves a bit more water than cacti during summer time. Loves bright light to full sun. The warmer the better.

COOL! Never seen that before. I love Euphorbia family members. So interested. I am starting to collect the weirder ones.

Nice Euphorbia Thumbs up I like the ones that form caudexs.

I've got one. I picked it up last year. It's been over-wintering in my windowsill. Time to set it outside.
