How to keep me happy and healthy


Place less than 3ft from a window

African Milk Barrel love being close to bright, sunny windows.

Direct sunlight will help them grow, but when in direct light be sure to water adequately to avoid over-heating.


Water semi-frequently

African Milk Barrel can withstand levels of low water availability for a few days.

Try our intelligent assistant Greg for personalized watering reminders and to avoid over-watering or under-watering.


Repot after substantial growth

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.

After your african milk barrel has more than doubled in size, you should repot it to replenish its nutrients.
