If a poinsettia has graced your desk (Euphorbia pulcherrima), then you have already owned a euphorbia. Holiday poinsettias are the most colorful of the genus euphorbia, but not the easiest. It is the least likely plant ever to survive in the average office over the year without inviting all types of pests to join in on the fun. Poinsettia are the opposite of easy plant keeping. Euphorbia, on the other hand, are hardy and pest-resistant.
