Can anyone tell me what plant I am growing? I'm almost sure it is Euphorbia but which one?

Not yet but I've had it since it was a baby so it may take awhile to bloom this is only the second full year I have had it.

Treehugger,
I own many Euphorbias. Some in my yard hardy to zone 5 and lots inside my house. I must admit, I never saw anything close. I do like it. Does it have the white latex sap? Also I see you live close to me. I go to Janoski's Farm and Greenhouse often. Shame they shut down their green house during winter. Good farm store to go to.

Yes it has latex sap. When I bought it the lady couldn't tell me what it was but I had to have it so I'm still searching for a name for it. It might not even be a Euphorbia.

Looks like Euphorbia tithymaloides. Not sure which one though:

I grow the devils backbone and this one does resemble it but the main stem is straight not zigzag and the foliage is neatly up both sides (if you will) of the stem evenly spaced in a very neat row. I was just hoping some one would also be growing it to help me out.

I agree with you treehugger it is not a E. tithymaloides, basing on the non zig zag growth of the stem of your mystery plant. I really like the very neat arrangement of the leaves of your plant, looks very organized and the stem looks tightly braided.

The leaves remind me also of an aroid..but it sure is so different. Hey try the plant id forum we have here...more eyes to see and id it!

Not all varieties have a distinctly zig-zagged stem.

One could fill a whole room with various leaf/stem/variegation styles of this 1 species.

OH! my gosh. I'm so sorry Tiffany Lovey dubby I blew you off only to check out your suggested sites and yes it is a E. tithymaloides. I'm going to say it is 'Nana' because after all this time growing it keep putting up new stems and never seems to get any taller than 8"and I'm still not growing it quite right because it still has not bloomed. Thank you for all your helpโ™ฅ And thanks to everyone for all your ideas.

Happy to suggest. It's dangerous info though, for the collection-susceptible! If you like one you prob would like 'em all, and see enough difference to justify collecting, inadvertently or actively! I thought I "had it" too until seeing a collector's pics on FB. Oops!

Is this like the one you already had?
