Euphorbia pseudoglobosa is endemic to the Southern Cape coastal area from the Riversdale district westwards.
The main stem and tuberous root of the plants form one underground body, with the branches protruding partly above. The plants appear to be related to Euphorbia susannae and Euphorbia juglands both of which are found in the desert-like Little Karoo.
Propagation is from seed or cuttings. Euphorbia pseudoglobosa should be planted in a well drained sandy soil. Cultivation is not difficult if the soil is allowed to dry out between waterings.
Euphorbia pseudoglobosa from Rooivlei.
