Pencil cactus (Euphorbia tirucalli)
The pencil cactus (Euphorbia tirucalli) is an interesting shrub with succulent foliage that’s native to semi-arid tropical climates. It can grow quite large in the wild. Mature plants feature thick brown branches with clusters of smaller green branches at their ends, which are cylindrical in shape and around the thickness of a pencil (hence the plant’s common name). On the branches are oval leaves that grow up to an inch long. Also, in the late spring and early summer, small flowers appear at the ends of the green branches. This plant lacks the sharp spines that are commonly found on many cacti.

Pencil cactus plant grows best in direct sun lighting.
It can survive in extreme conditions too like 40-50 C.

The pencil cactus is often grown as a houseplant, though care must be taken due to its toxic components. While you generally can start a houseplant year-round, it’s best planted at the beginning of the growing season in the spring. And unlike many cacti, this plant does have a fairly fast growth rate.
