Euphorbia Trigona | African Milk Tree is fairly easy to propagate also, similar to a cactus, where one simply breaks off one of the “arms” and roots in potting medium. African milk trees don’t always require pruning. But because they grow so tall, but have a comparatively small, shallow root system, it’s not unusual for them to become top-heavy or to even topple over, so pruning may be necessary. The African milk tree propagates easily. You only need a pair of scissors or hand pruners and a container with potting medium. During the plant’s growing season in the spring and summer, treat it to water-soluble fertilizer once a month. Good drainage and reducing the risk of overwatering this plant are important considerations when potting and repotting. The African milk tree will do best in a porous clay pot that absorbs water. Avoid glazed pots that don’t absorb water very well, which adds to the risk of overwatering the plant
