Crown Of Thorns Plant Care

Crown of Thorns is a relatively easy plant to care for. It prefers bright, indirect light and well-draining soil. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings, and be careful not to overwater. This plant is drought tolerant and can withstand periods of dryness, so it's better to err on the side of underwatering rather than overwatering. Pruning can help control its size and shape, and you should remove any dead or yellowing leaves to promote new growth. Similarly, Crown of Thorns, being a flowering plant, benefits from 'deadheading'. As its blooms start to fade and die off, it's advisable to remove them. This practice allows the plant to focus its energy on producing new blooms and maintaining overall health. Remember, regularly removing spent flowers is a normal part of care for plants that bloom.

How Big Do Crown Of Thorns Plants Grow?

Crown of Thorns, also known as Euphorbia milii, is a slow-growing succulent plant that typically reaches a height of 1-3 feet and a width of 1-2 feet. Its stems are covered in thorns and are usually green or brown in color. The plant produces bright red, pink, or white flowers that bloom year-round when given the right care.

Temperature & Humidity

Crown of Thorns plants are best kept in warm temperatures ranging from 60°F to 80°F (15°C – 27°C), similar to their natural habitat. These plants are sensitive to sudden temperature changes, so it's important to avoid placing them near vents, windows, or air conditioning units. When it comes to humidity, Crown of Thorns plants prefer a drier environment with low to moderate humidity levels. They can tolerate lower humidity levels, making them ideal for those living in drier climates. It's important to let the soil dry out completely between watering to avoid over-watering and root rot. With proper care, Crown of Thorns plants will bloom with stunning pink, red, or white flowers all year round.

Are Crown Of Thorns Plants Toxic for Pets & Kids?

Crown of Thorns is considered to be mildly toxic if ingested, so it's important to keep it away from curious children and pets. While the plant is generally safe to handle, it's best to wear gloves when pruning to avoid any potential skin irritation. If you suspect your pet has ingested any part of the plant, contact your veterinarian immediately for advice.

Troubleshooting Common Problems with Crown Of Thorns

if you notice the crown of thorns' leaves becoming spotted in black or yellow, it may not be receiving enough bright light. Gradually move the pot to a brighter location to avoid shocking the plant. If a leaf becomes weak or droopy, remove the entire leaf and relocate the pot to a brighter area. If the leaves are becoming too long or leggy, it is also an indication that the plant is not getting enough sunlight. In this case, gradually move the pot to a brighter location to encourage fuller growth. If multiple leaves are losing color, moving the pot to a more brightly lit location may be necessary. On the other hand, if multiple leaves are becoming brown or crispy, moving the pot to a less directly lit area is recommended. In general, the crown of thorns prefers bright indirect light and should be kept away from drafts.
