We have a 'houseplant' which we grew from seed 8 years ago. It is now 24" tall and produces a white sap when removing dead leaves, tiny white flowers and fires the seeds out. Unusual looking plant, but my husband loves it! We have lots of seedlings too growing around the base.... Would really like to know what it is Sal.

Be careful...

...with the white sap. It can be highly irritant especially if it gets in your eyes. Always wash your hand after you've been de-leafing.

Has some native relatives, such as wood spurge, which can be found in woodland in your area.
