I ordered a Monstera a great specimen arrived a few days later. I am very happy with it. Only problem is the package was a bit tight and some leaves were damaged but I guess this is inevitable.

Had a really good experience, my delivery was a bit delayed due to waiting for stock of Bird of Paradise which didn’t time well for me going away. On contacting the team John was very responsive and accommodating with arranging delivery for when I was back instead. Plants were packaged very well, arrived in perfect condition and all super healthy. Would recommend Oxy Plants and would purchase from them again in the future!

How To Care For African Milk Tree

Water your African Milk Tree roughly once a month, or when the top half (to all) your soil has dried through. If you’re struggling to gauge this, be sure to use the “thumb trick”. Pop your thumb into the soil to see if it is dry, or moist.

Be sure to place your African Milk Tree in a spot with plenty of sun and and warmth. A spot near a living room or bedroom window would be perfect.

There’s no need to worry about humidity with this succulent. If you’re misting your other houseplants, it’s best to give this one a miss!

The African Milk Tree loves a well-draining, loamy soil. Try to keep your soil a neutral pH as well.

As your Milk Tree may flower, it’s always helpful to use a little fertiliser during the growing season. Make sure you invest in some Miracle-Gro Succulent Plantfood, or cactus potting mix.

African Milk Trees are naturally resistant to most pests and bugs. However, watch out for spider mites and mealybugs. If your plant comes into contact with any, use some of our natural neem oil to treat.

Consider repotting your African Milk Tree once a year. Every time you do it, it’s wise to buy a plant pot 1-2 cm’s larger. This should help to give some growing room!

About African Milk Tree

Are you looking top bring a touch of the desert into your home? The African Milk Tree makes a great addition to any living room, conservatory, or room with plenty of sunlight over the course of the day. This cacti certainly provides something exotic and sharp to look at!

The African Milk Tree has evolved to be one of the hardiest plants on earth! In order to survive the arid conditions of the desert, this cactus has evolved to maximise water intake. It’s needle-like thorns and deep ridges are designed to funnel water down to its roots, where it can store this in its thick, green stem. With this in mind, the African Milk Tree is definitely one of our easy-care houseplants. It’ll make a perfect gift for beginner gardeners and the not so green-fingered. If it can manage in the desert, it’ll love your home!

The African Milk Tree really thrives in the hot climate of the Central African Deserts. Be sure to place your succulent in the warmest rooms in your house, near a window. Whatever you do, don’t keep your Milk Tree in your garden, as it is unlikely to survive outside during a British Winter. It may be a hardy houseplant, but it’ll be wishing for a plane ticket home in a dark, cold, and rainy conditions!

Not only will the African Milk Tree retain its deep green colour all year round, but it will grow exponentially during the growing season. During hot summers, your Milk Tree may even bloom , delicate white flowers. That’s definitely something to watch out for!

Caution: the African Milk Tree is a cactus and does have spiky thorns. It is also toxic to pets and humans. As such, it may be unsuitable for a home with adventurous toddlers and furry friends!

 

Please note: this plant comes in a plastic nursery pot. Browse our entire range of plant pots to add that extra charm and character to your home.
