The Frilled Fan, also known as Crested Elkhorn, Crested Candelabra Plant, Coral Cactus, or Crested Euphorbia, is a captivating crested succulent variety that stands out for its mesmerizing fan-like growth pattern. This genetic mutation creates an intricate and rare structure, making it highly sought after among succulent enthusiasts.
Though its flowers are relatively inconspicuous and go mostly unnoticed, the Frilled Fan’s charm lies in its unique shape. This small bush can reach up to 1 meter in height and thrives during the summer growing season.
Originating from Africa, this particular cultivar has been carefully nurtured for garden beauty. For optimal growth, place the Frilled Fan in a location with full sun to partial shade. Care should involve allowing the soil to completely dry between thorough watering to prevent overwatering.
However, it’s crucial to handle this plant with care. Euphorbia lactea ‘Cristata’ is for ornamental purposes only, as the milky sap can be toxic and cause adverse reactions if it comes into contact with the skin or eyes. As such, it should not be ingested, and caution should be taken when pruning or handling.
