Euphorbia decepta is an interesting and very attractive small Euphorbia species. The globose body protrudes mainly above the ground. The short little fingers and general appearance of this Euphorbia species is shared by some other Great Karoo Euphorbias, e.g.: Euphorbia crassipes, Euphorbia suppressa and some undescribed ones.
The distribution area of Euphorbia decepta is in the south eastern Great Karoo.
Propagation is from seed.
