Can someone please tell me why my cacti are turning brown near the bases? I live in Thailand and I don't see this problem on any of the cacti being sold at the markets...obviously I am doing something wrong. Thanking you in advance.
This is a Euphorbia, and is going through a process known as "corking". It is normal, to an extent. In this case, this would be considered excessive corking, and will signify significant stress.
I would give them shade from the afternoon sun, and make sure that the soil is NOT clay and well draining cactus mix with plenty of sand.
Overwatering and too much sun/heat will cause excessive corking, so I would ensure that neither of those is happening.

Hi There, I am a new garden enthusiast but a novice. In my garden I keep seeing this (attached a photo) plant keeps growing from under the deck. I did look at the membrane under the deck seems to be pretty good standard, but yet this plant seems strong enough to pierce through. No other weeds grow other than just this one. I have tried few weed killers, but need to first identify which plant is this looks like a conifer? Please suggest. Regards, V
It appears to be a Euphorbia of some type. There are many varieties, from plant to cactus forms, to trees with deadly sap, making this one of the most broad genus on the planet.
You can cut it down, and pour boiling water on it once or twice per day for a few days. This will completely kill it off without making the ground toxic.
Can you give me information on the care of Euphorbias, including watering, soils, fertilizer and when, pests and getting rid of, dormancy, winter care, mildew and solution, and any other tips you can share. Thanks, Charlene Palmer
General care is similar for most Euphorbias, although there are many species of various sizes and forms, so there will be some variations with planting, potting support etc. Here is more information:
Hi, does anyone have any idea what this might be? It's coming up in just one area of my bedding. I can't remember planting bulbs here but that's not to say I definitely haven't done
That is one of countless Euphorbia. The Genus ranges from trees to small succulents, all of which have a toxic sap. Some are more toxic than others.
My best guess will be Euphorbia helioscopia.
I just bought these 2 euphorias couple days ago and it seems that the root is dead, what should I do? Replant cutting the roots? Help!
This happens, most often, with overwatering. Since there are stones on top of the soil, it will be very difficult to know when to water. It is very important to let the soil dry out, very thoroughly, to at least halfway down the container to prevent this.
There is no cure, nor will the lesions go away, but you can prevent further damage and new growth from sharing the same fate by changing the watering habits.

The plants in the photo are growing in my yard and I would like to identify the plants. I planted the plants as seed but I have no idea where the seeds came from. Thank you.
You might try contacting this California native plant society and see if they recognize the plants:
