    Sap is very dangerous to the eye … Burns for 24 hours

    • Oh dear, sounds like you’ve had a terrible time with it, Paula! Yes, like all Euphorbia, this one has that dangerously caustic milky sap which can irritate skin but become very dangerous in the eyes. I’ve heard that some people find that their eyes are affected by just the fumes off Euphorbia tirucalli when it is pruned.
