About Euphorbiaceae

Pests and Diseases - Tip Die-Back

The drying back of shoot ends is not a disease, but the plant’s natural reaction to excessive dryness or lack of nutrients. If it occurs, plants should be repotted into a more moisture-conserving soil, or watering should be judiciously increased. In some species, tip die-back is quite normal, E. gariepina for example, or of outer branches, E. tridentata for example.
