Euphorbia anoplia, commonly known as the Tanzanian Zipper Plant or African Candelabra, is a succulent plant species native to East Africa, particularly Tanzania. It belongs to the Euphorbiaceae family, which is known for its diverse and unique plant forms.

The Euphorbia anoplia is a slow-growing, spiny succulent that can reach a height of up to 6 feet (1.8 meters) in its natural habitat. It has a distinctive cactus-like appearance with multiple vertical stems that grow densely together, forming a columnar or cylindrical shape. The stems are ridged and have prominent spines along the ridges, giving the plant its common name, "Tanzanian Zipper Plant."

The stems of Euphorbia anoplia are typically green, but they can develop reddish or purple hues in response to sunlight exposure or environmental conditions. Like other succulent plants, it has adapted to arid and semi-arid conditions and has the ability to store water in its stems, allowing it to withstand drought periods.

Euphorbia anoplia produces small inconspicuous flowers, often yellowish or greenish in color, which are surrounded by small bracts. The flowering period can vary depending on the growing conditions but usually occurs in late winter or spring.
Euphorbia anoplia generally prefers well-draining soil, bright indirect light, and infrequent watering.

It is important to note that Euphorbia plants, including Euphorbia anoplia, contain a milky sap or latex that can be toxic and irritating to the skin and eyes. It is recommended to handle these plants with care and take precautions to avoid contact with the sap.

!!Euphorbia sap is a form of latex and is considered toxic!!
