Despite its somewhat off-putting name, crown of thorns (Euphorbia milii) is a very pretty succulent plant that can bloom almost year-round, even indoors. 

Although crown of thorns can grow into a woody shrub, it is also an ideal houseplant for most homes. It likes the same room temperature that people enjoy and it can handle the lack of humidity prevalent in most homes during the winter.

Light: As with most flowering plants, the better the sun exposure, the more blooms you will get. However, crown of thorns will reliably bloom as long as it gets at least three to four hours of bright, direct sunlight per day. Outdoors, try to place it under full sun. Indoors, place your plant in a west or south-facing spot during winter.Since it is a succulent, crown of thorns is very forgiving about water.

Watering: Water when the soil feels dry about 1 inch below the surface. Water thoroughly and allow any excess to drain off. Do not let your plant sit in water or wet soil for prolonged periods of time or the roots will rot. Crown of thorns will go semi-dormant in the winter and need less frequent watering and not food.
