Crown Of Thorns

Crown of Thorns Drooping


Anonymous added on September 2, 2016 | Answered

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.
