Euphorbia milii (Crown of Thorns / Christ Plant)

Basic Care

Every 1-2 weeks. Allow the soil to dry out in-between.


Easy to please!

Euphorbia milii is recognized for its eye-catching blooms, which are not real flowers in the real sense, but spathaceous red bracts conveniently situated at the shoot tips. These conspicuous, saucer-shaped bracts surround the real yellow flowers. The narrow, obovate, smooth-edged leaves that are spirally arranged on the stem naturally drop off as the plant gets older. This gives a scrawny appearance in older plants – an awesome vintage aesthetic for your living room or office.

The Crown of Thorns Plant is less demanding when it comes to water. Its thick, spiny stems store water which keeps it hydrated for many days. Give it a thorough watering once a week and let the surface soil (about one inch deep) to dry out before watering it again.
