Crown of Thorns Plant (Euphorbia Milii) Indoor Care Guide

The Crown of Thorns Plant (Euphorbia milii) is a broadleaf evergreen semi-succulent shrub and a member of a large Euphorbia genus. It is native to Madagascar and grows in tropical climates worldwide. It’s quite popular as a houseplant since it requires little care and thrives indoors.
Euphorbia milii is a hardy plant. It can survive extremely unfavorable conditions and still come out looking lush and colorful.
You can propagate Euphorbia milii from tip cuttings but let sap dry before placing the cutting in a growing medium.
  1. Cut the apex of a healthy stem with a lush crown of bracts.
  2. Remove the bottom leaves and insert the stem into moist soil (after waiting for the sap to dry).
  3. Keep the soil moist and place the container somewhere sunny and warm.
  4. The plant will grow roots and new shoots from the cut end of the stem.
