 Easy growing cactus, does not require much care and tolerates full indirect sunlight.Great plant for its colorful all year round blooms , except for the huge sharp thorns! plant away from traffic areas, and take care with pets and small children. Flowers grow as bunches of buds on stems with fresh thick rubbery leaves. The plant grows tall with stems like sticks having thorns with a bunch of green and flowers on the top, hence the name crown of thorns.
