Hope that this is the name for this plant but will welcome help with the name. Yale
This is my first knowing this species. Learn new things everyday. Checked online, yes it looks like it. Hopefully more responses posted soon.
proper name is E xylophylloides... enterophora is old name. Looks like that plant only it looks severely dehydrated.
I should have explained that this plant was watered daily for a month or so, but remained branchless. It was then watered every 10 days for a few months, with no change. It is now on a mist bench, and is growing vigorously.
I haven't been able to find when E. xylophylloides came to replace the name used with my photo. Susan Carter (2002), in Dicotyledons (IHSP), was unsure if E. x. was a Euphorbia. It is clear that both names have been applied to this plant.
In any case, many thanks senjanevada, for your comments. Yale
