Hi, I have an Euphorbia Ammak that has flower buds and I was wondering if anyone had any pics of their Ammak flowers so I can know what I have to look forward to.

Thanks

    A Google search for 'Euphorbia ammak flowers' found the first one in Hawaii, where it was on vacation.

    Properly, Euphorbias don't have flowers, they have cyathia - it's a great bar bet winner.

    So they are just bulb looking things? What happens when they fall off and die?

    I am SO going to a bar and either winning me a lot of money, or getting myself beat up...not sure which one would come first...

    When they fall off and die, providing they were good, they become new E. a. plants. If they weren't good, they don't.

    ....i have never seen or had one of these but
    i want you to try something once they fall off
    take one and cut it open and see if there are seeds inside!

    Yeah, I will. I think it's a fruit that doesn't flower? Is that right?
