My seed grown Euphorbia obesa is showing off its new fall colors. I love how these look when they start to “cork”. On Euphorbia obesa, the corking always shows up as a cool pattern instead of just appearing as random blobs, like on regular succulents.
My 3 year (+ 2 months) old Euphorbia obesa kind of grew out of its etiolation and is turning spherical again. It’s growing very quickly (for a succulent) right now. You can see the slight indents on top between the ribs that show how much it has grown during this growth spurt.
Right now it’s just about the size of a small tangerine.
The roundest plant of them all! My Euphorbia obesa has grown several tiny pink nubs between the areolas on top of the plant, which may or may not turn into flowers. I guess time will tell.
It’s spring and I finally potted my obesa seedlings into separate pots. And I just realized something. This would fit so well in a Bulbasaur pot.
The bad news: So I lost one of the smaller obesa seedling a couple of weeks ago.
The good news: The remaining seedlings now have enough room to stay in their current pot until summer.
I love watching these up close. The little buds on top of some of the seedlings haven’t really grown at all. Hopefully I’ll see them bloom this summer!
I’ve wanted to take a picture of my Grandma’s slightly phallic Euphorbia ritchiei for such a long time. This dude is awesome! Mine unfortunately died.
My third sunset photo. This time, my now huge Euphorbia seedlings. Most of them are now touching, but I think I need another type of planter to prevent this from happening. Maybe I’ll just let them grow this way and see what happens.
A lovely view.

So my Euphorbia ritchiei (used to be a Monadenium) is flowering. I guess he really liked it when I moved him back indoors. Several pups are growing flower buds, but this one popped early 🌸
