Euphorbia obesa 'Baseball Plant'

$ 25.00 Sold out
Size: 2"

Euphorbia obesa, affectionately known as the 'Baseball Plant,' is a peculiar yet fascinating succulent native to South Africa. This plant is a true marvel of nature, with its perfectly spherical shape that closely resembles a baseball. The surface of Euphorbia obesa is divided into vertical segments that are beautifully patterned with shades of green, sometimes accented with subtle hues of pink or purple, especially when exposed to direct sunlight. Its smooth, glossy appearance adds to its unique aesthetic, making it a standout addition to any succulent collection.

Reaching up to 6 inches in height and diameter, the 'Baseball Plant' maintains a compact size, making it ideal for small spaces such as desktops, windowsills, or as a charming accent in a mixed succulent display. It is a slow-growing plant, which contributes to its rarity and desirability among enthusiasts. One of the most intriguing aspects of Euphorbia obesa is its method of reproduction; it is dioecious, meaning that individual plants are either male or female, and both are needed for seed production. However, it seldom blooms in cultivation.

Care for the 'Baseball Plant' is straightforward, requiring minimal watering and plenty of sunlight to mimic its natural arid habitat. This low-maintenance gem is not only a conversation starter but also a testament to the diverse and adaptive nature of succulents. Whether you're a seasoned collector or new to the world of succulents, Euphorbia obesa 'Baseball Plant' is sure to capture your heart with its distinctive shape and easy-care demeanor.


Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
