This is such a cool plant. In the spring and summer it gets little yellow flowers in the center. It is absolutely beautiful.

Euphorbia flanaganii is an exotic succulent with multiple snake-like branches. Conical or cylindrical central caudex, up to 2 inches (5 cm) long and up to 4 inches (10 cm) in diameter. Soft, thin, deep-green arms that can grow up to 1 foot (30 cm) long and deciduous leaves, up to 0.4 inch (1 cm) long. Yellow-green flower heads, clustered at the center of the plant.

Unlike most succulents, Medusa’s Head does not handle long periods of drought well. It may need weekly watering during the summer. Water whenever the soil is dry several inches below the surface. It warns of a lack of water by gradually curling up its arms toward the center. Water deeply, but don’t let them sit in wet soil, which can cause root rot.

It thrives under direct sun, and needs at least 6 hours of direct sun per day for decent health and growth. On brighter subjects, Medusa’s Head makes an exceptional container plant, and it can also be put into gardens so long as it is protected from freezes.

Once it reaches a certain size, a mother plant will produce pups on the ends of older arms. The growth starts as a swelling at the end of an arm, and rapidly grows its own caudex and arms. After a time, if they don’t root on their own, the arm shrivels and allows the pup to roll away, where it rapidly grows if given access to soil and water.
