The African Candelabra Cactus can grow up to 36 feet tall in its native environments of South Africa. As a houseplant, Euphorbia ingens tops out at about 3 feet over time. These species thrive in bright direct light with low humidity and dry, well-draining soils. Known for its upright, unique branching habit, Euphorbia ingens is noted as having wavy margins along the sides of the stems. Although cacti rarely flower indoors, blooms are fragrant if and when they appear.
