You should use a cactus mix and make sure it drains well. Do not use potting soil. Euphorbias also need to be planted in clay pots, instead of plastic containers because the plastic may cause them to rot. Soil should be at least half an inch deep.
Make sure the temperature is between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and between 55 and 60 degrees at night. Growing temperatures should not exceed 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
