Crown-of-Thorns (Euphorbia milii)
Origin : Madagascar

The name comes from Euphorbius, an ancient Greek doctor who used the sap of this plant medicinally. Euphorbia milii is supposedly the plant used for Christ's crown of thorns (hence the name). The sap is poisonous and can be very irritating if touched. This plant loves direct sunlight, which makes blooming last longer. It grows well in a dry, warm environment.
