- Grown, packaged and shipped exclusively by Wekiva Foliage. Devil’s backbone (scientific name Euphorbia tithymaloides or Pedilanthus tithymaloides) is a succulent plant that also goes by Jacob's ladder, Japanese poinsettia, Persian lady slipper plant, and zig-zag plant. The tropical plant is native to Central America and Mexico.
- Delightfully crooked, zig-zag stems give Variegated Devil’s Backbone its wild, rebellious look and playful nickname. Variegation in shades of chartreuse, yellow and cream highlight the edges of the small, pointed leaves, adding extra appeal to its exotic form. In the cooler winter months, the leaf edges can take on a pink hue.
- Variegated devil’s backbone grows well in well-drained soil of nearly any texture when planted outdoors. Plant your indoor slipper plant in an all-purpose potting soil mixed with coarse sand, with a 6.1 to 7.8 pH level, for optimal results. Keep the soil barely moist from tepid water, and protect your plant from temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
- The plant will perform best in Sunset Zones H1, H2, 22, 23 and 24. Your devil’s backbone will thrive best in bright, but indirect, sun, although it will also tolerate partial shade.
- This colorful, succulent shrub makes a uniquely sculptural houseplant specimen. Also called Jacob’s Ladder, or Redbird Flower, the plant can develop tiny red flowers on the growing tips in spring, however they often don’t bloom in cultivation.

"Came in perfect condition--thank you!"
"Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."
"This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"
"Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"
"This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
