Comment
Green coral (scientific name: Euphorbia tirucalli) is a native of East Africa, a fleshy tropical and tropical tree of Euphorbia of the Euphorbiaceae family. Minimal leaves attached to the tip of the branch fall off quickly, and many stems and stems without dark green sting are branched. Flowers without petals will bloom. Extend the cup shaped inflorescence from the branch and attach several pieces of bracts that look like flowers with a set of 4 pieces. Flower name is based on the sap of white milky shape going out from the cut. Sap is poisonous, so people with weak skin may get caught. Because the blue branch looks like a coral, it is also called blue coral by another name. Breeding is done with cuttings. It is used for viewing.
