Giraffe Tree (Euphorbia drupifera) room plant

The plant has an additional name: Elaeophorbia drupifera (Thonn.)
Origin: Tropical Africa (Guinea). It is a Toxic Plant ( but used in medical therapy ) and may be grown in room coditions ( depending on outdoor weather conditions )
My plant have gotten a candelabrum shape ( after ca. 2 year)
