Known as Tanzanian zipper plant because of patterns along margins of angled stems that resemble a zipper. Euphorbia anoplia responds well to warmth, with its active growth period in the late spring and summer months. Requires bright light for best appearance, and should be given a winter resting period at which time less water should be given. Protect from frost. All euphorbias contain a white sap that can be irritating to eyes and mucous membranes. If contact is made with this white sap, take care to not touch face or eyes before washing hands with soap and water.
