Pedilanthus is a genus of plants in the family Euphorbiaceae, which includes around 18 species of succulent plants. The most commonly cultivated species is Pedilanthus tithymaloides, which is also known as Devil's Backbone or Redbird Cactus. Pedilanthus plants are native to tropical regions of the Americas and are often grown as ornamental plants in gardens or as indoor houseplants. They have fleshy, succulent stems that grow upright and branch out, forming a dense and bushy plant. The leaves are small and not very noticeable, while the stems are the main attraction, as they produce bright red, zigzagging bracts that emerge from the stems.
Pedilanthus plants are relatively easy to care for, making them a popular choice for beginner gardeners. They prefer bright, indirect light, but can tolerate some direct sun, especially in cooler climates. They grow best in well-draining soil and should be watered sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. They are also drought-tolerant and can handle some neglect. While Pedilanthus plants are generally easy to care for, they can be susceptible to pests such as spider mites and mealybugs. To prevent pest infestations, it's important to keep the plant clean and dust-free, and to check regularly for any signs of pests. If necessary, pests can be treated with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
