Here is my new Euphorbia lactea crest, isn't it gorgeous?!

I think you have confused brain with intestines, but it truly is gorgeous. Anyone would love to have one like that.

Yes indeed, that is gorgeous. Be careful with sun exposure. I moved a crested E. kibwezensis outside a little too early this year. It was seriously suburned on one side. Hopefully the scars will be less obvious as it gets older.

Your plant looks perfect. It is growing on its own roots?

Vilcat,
Pretty plant, they will grow up though. Here is a link to my 27 year old (check out the next shot). I need to make some cuttings of it and get it back down a bit.

Dan,
That plant is SO cool!!! I'm glad, though, that mine will take 27 years to get like your's, it looks like it takes up quite a bit of space. I just got an E. lactea 'White Ghost'. It is still small also.

It took years for mine to throw a couple of normal growths, if that happens, just cut and start like any cactus or Euphorbia. These can sometimes then revert to a crested later or just stay normal.

Some seem to grow faster than others.

Here's mine that I got just two years ago which is now about twice its original size. It's now in an 16" (or is it 18") pot.

Very nice Jadegarden,
I hope mine doesn't grow too fast.
