E. milii is genetically unstable because it has several chromosomes controlling the trait. From the same parent, many new offspring varieties will be produced. Purification of varieties needs to be done to obtain relatively stable properties, both in terms of morphology, productivity, and resistance to pests and diseases. Although it can grow in tropical and subtropical areas, E. milii prefers hot temperatures and full lighting, so it is less developed in subtropical countries. In developed countries, E. milii is classified as a poisonous plant (poisson plant), because the milk sap (exudate) from these plants if Coagulation with blood can stimulate the growth of abnormal cells.
