@jyotu mine didn’t produce flowers until last year and in September. I had it already almost 3 yrs. 🤔🙁😢. I guess it might take awhile I’m not sure but yours will, eventually!!🙂😃😊🤗🤗😊💕

@jeatacake Thxs for all the thumbs up!! I sure wish this Crown of Thorns” grew faster but if this one makes it, its going to be nice and full with all the branches coming up!! I’m still concerned about my seeds not coming up not even one out of 3-73 cell trays and I know some where from late summer (the seeds) that’s why I’m guessing it was to cold. Your do ok?!?? Maybe it’s just the way the Esperanza and the other were feather like seeds. I just hate when things don’t work out. I’ll let u know

jeatacake

Most welcome Terri. Seeds can be frustrating things & vary a lot, but very rewarding when they grow. Some are only viable for a short time & need to be sown fresh. Some need light to germinate, some don't. Some need cold treatment (stratification), but most need consistent & even warmth for germination. Also, a sterile growing medium like vermiculite can help. 👍

@KariSamuel Here’s the Crown of Thorns. It’s filling in but I’m not sure if I should top it of (the main stalk) or there’s 5 other separate branches coming up from the main. Not sure what to do, if anything. I gave my daughter a cutting of a good size of a branch. It didn’t make it but the cutting gave my plant new growth and only 2 flowers this summer but it needs mostly shade here in Texas. Thxs!!😊💕
