Hi all, I bought this Euphorbia and it is very etiolated at the top. Should I just cut off the tops down to the original, thickened parts? Or leave it. Thanks!

Chop! Maybe wait until spring to do it though, because there's probably a bit more etiolation to come during the dark months ahead.

Turn it around to see if it will curve the other way and become a question mark.
Rolling my eyes.

Snipped! I put it under my grow light so it can get more light (: I've never cut one before so it was cool to see the infamous white substance it leaks!

Lindsey, that latex sap can be irritating, so handle with care. Always handle with gloves, if you can.

I did while cutting! Made sure not to get it on me.
