The Cowboy Cactus is a classic, cartoon-style cactus with branching, fleshy stems adorned with sharp spines. Its long elegant shape helps it to stand out as an architectural focal point.
Height is measured from the bottom of the plastic nursery pot (please allow a +/-10% variance). Diameter is the nursery pot diameter, so to get a pot that fits, the pot diameter should be bigger.

Euphorbia ingens was named after a Greek physician, Euphorbus when they discovered the plant in the Atlas mountains. Since then, it has become a popular feature in many homes, due to its striking appearance and fast-growing, easy to care for nature.
The Cowboy Cactus is native to Southern Africa, where it can grow up to 12 metres tall. It is usually found on rocky outcrops and is a favourite nesting spot for birds.
The Cowboy Cactus is fast growing in height but has shallow roots, so watch out for it becoming unstable if it grows too tall for its pot.
Although it is commonly known as the Cowboy Cactus, it is actually part of the Euphorbiaceae family and not part of the Cactaceae (cactus) family.
