Crown of Thorns Plant
My plant is different than most in that the leaves are larger and thicker. I've had it for 20+ years and each spring I would cut it down and replant because during the winter the lower leaves would fall and not grow back. It always came back and would be beautiful during the summer, fall and some of the winter. A couple years ago I did the same thing, but this time 5 shoots came out and all produced beautiful flowers. It was the most beautiful plant I have ever seen. Five weeks ago I want away for two weeks and left my plant with a friend. I didn't realized that she had no direct sunlight into her home. When I got back almost all the leaves on each shoot fell off. I was so disappointed. I have cut each shoot off and potted them in half peat moss and perlite. They have all taken. What should I transplant them into and what can I do to get new shoots on each plant. Please help me.
