When this plant blooms, is it known to be fragrant? I swear mine is and everyone I talk to about it says they don't have a smell.
Yes, the Crown Of Thorns can emit fragrance.
Some varieties may be more fragrant then others.

Here is an article with tips on how to propagate a 'crown of thorns':
Is the Crown of Thorns plant one that can be planted outdoors in Zone 8/9?
No. The Crown of Thorns Plant needs average temperatures of between 65-75 F. (18-24 C.) degrees Fahrenheit, and it can only withstand lows as 50 F. (10 C.). This article may help you:
Leaves drooping and curling in but still blooming on my crown of thorns. Why? They're outside.
During active growth the entire root ball should be watered but allow the top inch to dry between waterings. After flowering allow the top third of the soil to dry between watering. If the soil dries out the plant will drop it's leaves prematurely. Crown of Thorns can be finicky and react to stresses.
Here is a link to refresh you on the care requirements.
We have a bed of crown-of-thorns and some of the stems are drooping. Not sure if it's from too much water or not enough. Our plants were fine and then we had a couple of weeks of afternoon showers, then it got hot and dry again. I'm puzzled on what to do.
If Crown Of Thorns become stressed from water issues; either too much or too little, they can drop their leaves, but generally will bounce back when the issue is corrected.
Though they are a succulent, they have little ability to store water. You should make sure they are watered when the soil has dried during it's active growing period. While dormant they will need less water.

I received a plant today and it is beautiful. I am in a nursing home and the area where the plant will have to live has a room air conditioning unit right behind to get sun. Please advise. Thank you so much Penni Smith

If at all possible avoid the air conditioner blowing unto the plant.
I was recently given a c of t plant. It's pretty tall. Can I cut off top of plant and pot to another pot?
You can remove the branches back to a lateral branch. This is preferable to cutting the shrub into the exact size you want, as that sometimes leaves branches bare and stubby for years. The key to reducing a crown of thorn's size is looking for the green buds and cutting above them, so the buds will blossom after pruning.
