So for my plant specialization, I chose this because of its abundance to my locality. I bought my first plant last March 2008. Brightly and bloody colored red flowers and heaps of green leaves there is. Then school days start and I forgot to take good care of the plants. As soon as this come to my attention, flowers begins to fall one at a time. I thought the plant were just adjusting to its new environment.
One time I got the chance to look at it closer. As I am getting close I noticed leaves were also diminishing! Mostly were already decaying on the soil and some had jagged margins. I tried to look underneath the leaves and to my surprise two caterpillars are devouring my plants! I hurriedly pick a stick and took it out of my sight. Well too late, leaves are badly damaged and stems were all left out. I pull out the complete fertilizers I bought together with the euphorbia then I observe it after a few days later. These are some of the pictures I took for my documentation.
this photo was taken after i took my euphorbia plant away from the garder in front of our yard because i thought caterpillars that ate my plant were from the other plants. i placed my euphorbia plant in front of my window next to where i could always observe it. i also apply fertilizers to it and water it every after two days.
