Showing off my Euphorbias again. I can look at these guys all day and always see something different.

This one broke off last year and seems to be very happy to grow on it's own.

And my taller ones. One on Left is what was gifted to me and Right one is from a reversion on my crest.

Lookin' good but... Ah-oh. Don't let that 'throw back' on #4 and #5 grow. Get out your Exacto knife and operate. Those little 'Ah-oh's' will quickly overtake you plant.

Thank you Daisy, I do take lots of cuttings off from time to time. That one on #4 has a twist and has 4 sides!. Come this spring I am going to grow this on it's own. So far, I have never seen an Euphorbia lactea 4 sides. Has to do with the cresting I suppose. Anyway it is uniquely different. Just hope nothing bad happens from now to then.

Also thanks for all the likes and an acorn.

The original does sometimes have 4 sides (in cross section, diamond shaped), or 3 sides, sometimes with a little twist. There is a reason they tend to crest so readily. It looks like that particular "Ah-oh" is variegated though.
