If you’re looking for a plant that thrives in the conditions inside most homes, try the crown of thorns plant (Euphorbia milii). Growing the plant is easy because it adapts well to normal room temperatures and in dry indoor environments. It also forgives occasional missed waterings and feedings without complaint.
- Viable between 50° and 90° F restricting it to mainly indoor use
- Repot the plant every two years in late winter or early spring.
- Use a quick draining potting soil i.e. Fertilome Cacti soil
- Wear gloves when working with crown of thorns. The plant is poisonous if eaten and the sap causes skin irritations. Crown of thorns is also poisonous to pets and should be kept out of their reach.
