Auscultation and diagnosis

It is important to know that this type of plant is very sensitive to excess light. So do not expose them directly to the sun and even less behind a bay window where the rays are concentrated and accentuated. This spot can be the consequence of such exposure following a reaction from the plant. Unfortunately, the latter is marked and the stain will not be able to resolve. Note that this stain can also come from a possible shock that the plant could have suffered during a move for example. In this case, the stain comes from a lesion caused by the blow received.

Some recommendations

It is advisable not to expose this type of plant directly to the sun and to favor semi-shaded areas. On the other hand, if you have to move your cactus, be sure to do it gently and not to shock it. By following these tips, you should have a leafy spurge cactus, ready to spruce up your home or apartment! You too, ask your questions at The Plant Clinic!
