Q.Crown Of Thorns Trimmed Too Much?
Hi Mary Dyer gave an account on how to prune. I have one in a 20 inch pot that is over 15 years old. In the fall, I took a hedge trimmer and just cut off every limb that was over the edge of the pot. It looks horrid. I must have gone too far. Wondering if I can do something to revive the plant. Would hate to lose it. Its in the shade indoors in our plant room now.

They need four hours of sun a day, so I would move it where it can get more light. The article you referenced said crown of thorns was a forgiving plant, so hopefully it will look better in time. Follow its care instructions below.
