Euphorbia Milii --- Crown of Thorns


The Euphorbia milii or Crown of Thorns is a succulent having spines on its stem.
This plant originates from Madagascar and is easy to grow and propagate. However, care should be observed during handling as the plant is toxic. The Crown of Thorns can be kept indoors and can also tolerate relatively higher salinity levels than other plants. So give it a try if you live near the seaside!!!


Always wear gloves and/or goggles when cutting or grafting the Crown of Thorns. Pruning of the Crown of Thorns is not straightforward because of its poisonous sap. The white sap looks like milk, and may ruin your cutting tool. It is preferable to use a cheap knife instead. Cleaning is also easier.
