Finally… about a year after germination and several different IDs later, my Euphorbia milii has decided to bloom. It is still very small, only 4 inches tall in a tiny bonsai pot with a few small succulents (Schizobasis intricata, Sedum morganianum, and another E. milii to be specific). I was under the impression that this plant would bloom in pairs, i.e. 2 blooms or 4 blooms and so on. Mine either didn’t read the rulebook or is a little special. Either way, it has decided to reward my year of neglect/diligence (depending on how you look at it) with a single colorful flower.
I love a challenge. Whether it is germinating seeds from exciting new plants (at least exciting and new for me), keeping and raising fish, poison dart frogs, and ornamental shrimp, or navigating new areas of the world without maps or guides, I am interested in it. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest most of my life, and I'm still fond of moss and gray skies. View all posts by justinvance
