Often called the "Medusa cactus," this succulent is actually a part of the Euphorbia family, and is native to South Africa. Lovely yellow flowers bloom in their middle in mid-summer!
It thrives best in very bright indirect sun to partial shade for 4-8 hours, a day and likes its soil to dry out in between waterings -- in other words, it thrives on neglect! Just make sure you don't neglect it for too long. Water your Medusa's Head once a week if outside and once every 2 weeks if inside.
If you’re worried about getting your water schedule right, we recommend using a Moisture Meter! These handy tools will help you gauge if your plant needs water or not, without the mess of sticking your hands in the soil to check.
If a plant is out of stock, we apologize – we’re very grateful for our community’s support, and can sell out of certain plants quite quickly! We get new plants about once a week and try to source all our community’s favs as fast as we can.
If you’re local to the LA area, we recommend coming into the shop when you can, especially if you’re looking for a new plant! We have much more plants in our store than we display online, as well as a full backyard greenhouse that houses our discounted rehab plants that need a bit more TLC from a new home.
