Euphorbia fusca is a medusa- head Euphorbia, with a diameter of up to around 200 mm. The plants are easily recognized by the furrow in the apex of the main stem of adult plants. The body of Euphorbia fusca protrudes above the ground, similar to some other Great Karoo Euphorbias.
The distribution of the plants is in the Northern Karoo, Botswana and Namibia.
Propagation is from seed.
I have found the plants a bit more difficult to cultivate then some other similar species. They are rather prone to rot.
