I have googled searching questions about my crown of thorns. It was wonderful spring through late fall. The minute we got a cold snap I brought it into my heated patio room. But within a week it is 3/4 yellow leaves. Every year I do know that it does drop leaves and almost goes dormant in the winter but it’s freaking me out this time. I did give it fresh putting soil this spring. Is there anything else I should do?

Sounds like it could be too much water - they don't need much, only when the top inch of the soil is dry to the touch. What is the drainage like in the pot?

We did get a big rain outside before I brought it in, before the cold snap. Drainage is good.

Heres what it looks like now. It was super dry, so I did water and put it outside against a warm stucco wall. I now I am going to lose a bunch of leaves. It should come back :(

It does look pretty stressed! I can't see the pot, how big is it? Do you fertilize it? Do you always wait until the soil it dry before watering?
