It is called Pedilanthus tithymaloides, but it is also known as "green lightning" or "devil's spinal column" due to the zig-zag shape of the stems. The latter are succulent and contain a white and milky lymph inside. from the West Indies and Mexico, where it was popular as a "plant along the passage" due to its ease of propagation from cuttings.In nature it can reach 3/4 meters in height. - gray with a white variegation.This plant produces small red flowers that some say resembles a slipper, hence the Latin name Pedilanthus ("Fiore pantofola").

Pedilanthus: how to take care

Exposure and brightness: The Pedilanthus tithymaloides prefers a bright area but sheltered from direct sunlight, especially during the summer months. It is a tropical plant and therefore also needs a good moisture condition. During the winter it would be good to keep it sheltered from cold temperatures.

Irrigation: We recommend regular watering during the summer, spring and autumn, taking care that the soil is well dry between wetting and the other. Too much water could cause root rot. During the winter months greatly reduce watering. To recreate the right moisture condition you can mist the leaves using a special nebulizer.

Fertilization: Fertilization must be carried out during the vegetative period with a specific fertilizer for fat plants.

N.B. The specifications described above may vary depending on the climate of the area where the plant is placed and the season
