Gardening in Small Spaces - Crown of Thorns ....!!

     The crown of thorns plant commonly known as the Christ plant is an attractive  thorny succulent with bright green tear-shaped leaves that produces a cluster of flowers in red, pink, yellow colors. This is  one of my ever-time favorite plants, and is extremely easy to grow and maintain.

Cheerful Crown of Thorns at my balcony garden ...!!

I have grown them at my balcony in a medium sized pot layered with soil and some manure. The plant needs watering only when the soil becomes dry - so take care not to over-water it. Because of the long spines that are found in the plant, always take care while handling the plant.

Have a great weekend everyone !!! ;-) ;-)
