    So my mother has some Crown of Thorns plant and she really wants to them to bloom more flowers. Instead of two or three blooms only. Anyone know any special blend or remedies to make the flowers bloom more. [​IMG] Anything I will try! Thanks [​IMG]

    If the plant is in a shady spot and moveable you might want to try giving it more sunlight first. Usually the Crown of Thorns plants look their best if you can find their sweet spot. Too much shade, lots of green leaves, no flowers. Too much sun, lots of flowers, crispy-fried leaves (if any.) Somewhere in the middle gets a nice balance of green leaves and lots of flowers.

    If it's already getting plenty of sun and healthy-looking but not flowering... depends on your preferred fertilizer. Chemically speaking, any with a higher middle number should do the trick, they'll usually be called "bloom booster" or something similar. If you'd rather stay away from chemical fertilizers, banana peels have never failed me. :)
