I have a plant which I am told is a "firestick", which is a succulant. I would like to bring it inside now before we have a freeze. Since it is getting too large can I trim it back and if so, is there any special way to do this?

Attached is a link to a picture of the plant.

Your succulent (Euphorbia tirucalli) does not like trimming at all - but must is must.
You can find some useful information there :


PS. I like your plant very much - it looks healthy and well cultivated.

Attention for the sap as it is very poisonous. Avoid contact with skin, mounth and eyes!!! Wear gloves.
