Euphorbia milii, 'Crown of Thorns' + Vintage Zigzag Pot and Saucer

48.00

Crown of Thorns plant is one of the rare succulents capable of blooming almost year-round. Bright-green leaves grow along its thick, thorny stems. Lower leaves naturally fall off as the plant ages. If your plant gets too tall and leggy, you can prune it back by half its size in spring. This will cause it to branch out. New stems will grow from below where the pruning cuts were made, making this succulent bushy and full. Its flowers are actually bracts that last for several weeks—Spring and summer are usually the best seasons for an abundance of blooms. Crown of Thorns flower dependably when they get enough light. They’re easy to grow and drought-tolerant, preferring slightly dry, sandy soil. If its leaves turn yellow and fall off, cut back on the watering.
