Euphorbia White Plant care and instructions
Also, avoid placing the plant in an area with direct sunlight before the plant establishes a mature root system. It is advisable to wear gloves when taking euphorbia cuttings because latex can cause skin irritation. Prune off growing tips to control plants height. Plants that don’t bloom aren’t getting enough light. Move Crown of Thorns to a sunny window where it gets about 4 hours of direct sun every day. Wear thick gloves when handling this plant; those thorns are sharp! Also, watch out for its toxic, milky sap, which can irritate your skin, eyes, and mouth.

Water – Allow the top 1 in (2.5 cm) of soil to dry out between waterings. Waterless in winter when the plant rests. Also, avoid getting water on the leaves and stems because they can rot if they get too wet.
