Hello to all,

I bought a beautiful Euphorbia a couple of months ago. I was told to water it 1 a month in the winter and in the summer 1 a week. I was also told to keep it in a not to sunny place, that it should be placed where it can get both sun and shade through the day.
I went away on business for 2 weeks and had someone water it while i was away. They only came 1 as i told them to do so. When i came back, the plant was turning white. My question is: why is it going white?
Thank you very much for your help!

Welcome! Andre!!

It would be helpful if you could post a picture, so we can see what type of Euphorbia it is and the conditions in which it is growing.

I also welcome you, Andre. It would also help us to know where you live (approximately) and what the weather has been like there.
