The Euphorbia ingens is also known as “Cowboy cactus”. It is, in fact, not a cactus but a succulent that looks a lot like the typical cacti seen in Western movies. Its second name, ingens, means big – or even huge – in Latin. This Euphorbia ingens grows ten to twelve meters high in the wild! No worries, you won’t have to clear that much space for this version. As a houseplant, it retains a nicely compact size. The Euphorbia ingens is very low-maintenance. It’s doesn’t require regular watering and the spot makes little difference. This cowboy loves both sunny and light spots!
Before watering the Euphorbia, make sure the soil has really dried by sticking your finger down a couple centimeters. If the potting soil feels even a bit moist, don’t water it yet. If you water the plant while the potting soil is still moist, the roots may start to rot.

Allow the potting soil to dry completely before watering again.
Place the plant in a light or sunny spot.
Plants and health:
In order for your house to become a home – a place where you can truly unwind – we believe the addition of plants to be indispensable. Plants are much more than just a nice addition to your interior; they actively break down harmful substances and turn CO₂ into oxygen. Because we believe that everyone is entitled to a beautiful and healthy living environment, we are happy to share our green must-haves with you!
Will my plants be potted before delivery?
If you purchase a plant-pot combination, they will be delivered separately. Potting our plants is very easy! You can repot a plant from the plastic growers’ pot into the pot. You might add a layer of hydro grains, which will allow room for excess water to drain. If the pot is large enough, you could also simply place the plant with the growers’ pot in it. Is the growers’ pot a bit higher than the pot? That’s an easy fix. The growers’ pot is easily removed, after which you can press down the soil a bit. Wondering you have to do the potting yourself? Well, by delivering the pot and plant separately, we can pack both extra carefully. This way, we ensure they are both delivered in a perfect condition.
Our plants are delivered fresh from the grower. They make a quick pit stop at our distribution centre, where they are carefully packaged in a plant-friendly box. After packaging, your plants are sent straight to your home!
Because plants are living products, they are never exactly identical to the pictures shown on our website. Height measurements and shapes may differ due to weather conditions, for example.
