Picked this up in a forest months back. Turned out to be a decent decision. Initially it "completely died" (after a few days). Then a month later or so, another stem shot back up through the dirt. Now it's become a fairly large bush. Easily becoming one of my favorite plants - seems very strong & looks cool.

It looks very cool in person. Apparently it's somewhat poisonous: if you break a stem, tons of milky sap drips out, can affect your eyes apparently etc.



Names:
- Euphorbia cyathophora
- Florida poinsettia
- Wild poinsettia
- Fire on the mountain



Soils:
- Two different kinds so far: miracle gro (moisture control) & organic moisture retaining. Thriving in either one.


Potted - weed growth:
- Not much weed growth. I think it consumes all nutrients. It can itself be considered an invasive weed.



Roots:
- Massive root ball. This thing completely consumes the small pot. Have to transfer it once it gets ~2 ft. Once transferred, it really takes off, spawning several more shoots/stems etc.



Duration:
- Apparently a perennial in South Florida.
- Seems like it so far.

Some photos.

amazing root ball - very dense:





the flower:





as a bush:







as small developing plants:





a few weeks after i brought it home - can't even see it in there. looked completely dead. re-emerged a month later or so:
- it's the one on the upper right, with the pepper in there & the vine
- the biggest Wild Poinsettia I have, is that exact one. It grew WITH the vine in the same pot. They are still growing together, both doing very well. I think the vines roots are very shallow.
