Euphorbia obesa is a peculiar, almost ball shaped dwarf succulent plant that resembles a stone.

Euphorbia obesa is a rare endemic of the Great Karoo, south of Graaff-Reinet in the Eastern Cape.Although Euphorbia obesa is still rare in its habitat it is well established in cultivation. This is an example of ex situ conservation and one can safely assume that more plants exist in cultivation than in the plant's native habitat.
