📚 African Milk-Barrel Care Guide

African Milk-Barrel details
💧️ Water - Low Water
Low Water Needs

African Milk-Barrel is fairly forgiving when it comes to missing a watering day. These plants don't require much oversight.

For African Milk-Barrel, it is important to let the majority of the soil dry in between waterings. Be careful about overwatering your plant -- this can lead to fungal disease like root rot and pest infestations.

Growing Outdoors
If growing outdoors, you will want to plant African Milk-Barrel in an area that receives morning sunlight that's not too harsh and afternoon shade for most natural light. You can consider East facing portions of your garden as those get more morning sun.

Growing Indoors
If growing indoors, you can place African Milk-Barrel near an East-facing window that will receive morning sun for half of the day and afternoon shade.
You can also consider placing your African Milk-Barrel a few feet away from a South-facing window for diffused light. However, be careful about placing in direct sunlight of a South-facing window as that can cause leaf scorch and affect growth. You can always diffuse the harsh light of a South-facing window by using a sheer curtain.
