We love this Crown of Thorns with delicate red flowers. It is a great example of the beauty of flowering cactus species. This particular species stays short and is slow growing, perfect as a decorative plant in place of cut flowers. It produces a lot of red flowers constantly if grown in proper conditions.
It would prefer to be outdoors in full sun and heat, but we have been able to grow this variety indoors as long as it is an VERY high light area and does not get cold drafts from an air conditioner. Other than the light requirement these are very easy to grow. Adding a flower fertilizer will help it keep blooming.
Makes a great gift as a potted plant, in place of cut flowers. Given the right conditions it will keep flowering indefinitely.
