Euphorbia heterophylla (Family Euphorbiaceae) is a small erect weed (i.e. not climbing nor creeping) found in the tropical areas. The leaves are somewhat oval in shape with pointed ends. The main stem or branches may be dichotomously branched and flowers are formed at the end of the branches.Seeds can be dispersed and germinate around the parent plants. Seeds can be inadvertently transported by vehicles bringing out vegetable produce from the field.
