Description:

This bizarre succulent makes angular, zigzagging stems with big spines that look similar to cow’s horns. The species originates from the dry areas of the south east of Africa, where it grows like a bush like plant to a height of up to 2 meters. The growth is relatively fast and because of this the plant can even be grown as an hedge, as protection of the vegetable garden against animals for instance. As an indoor plant, the plant grows slower and not as tall. The plant needs a sunny spot and a soil with proper drainage, water when the soil is completely dry. After a couple of years the plant can produce small yellow flowers. The white plant sap is toxic, but will only appear if the plant is damaged.

Sowing description:

Keep the soil slightly moist at all times and germinate at a day temperature of 25-30 degrees and a night temperature of 18-22 degrees. Keep the sown seeds in a light spot without direct sunlight.
