Euphorbia anoplia Tanzanian Zipper Plant is a unique, leafless succulent that resembles a spineless cactus. The stems of Zipper Plant grow in dense clumps. Each rib is marked with a "zipper" of light and dark green striation. This succulent likes heat and grows most actively in late spring and summer, though it is a slow grower. During its growing season it will produce tiny burgundy flowers along the top edges. Very easy to care for. Not cold hardy.
Note: People and animals may have an allergic reaction to the plant sap. The sap can have major or minor toxicity if ingested. It can cause skin irritation and severe eye irritation.
