Every once in a while, my grocery store puts some plants on clearance. This is usually after they have been left to dry out, and they are then watered in an attempt to get some kind of profit from them.

The other day I chanced upon this pretty healthy looking euphorbia lomi for 99 cents - how could I resist? The tag also calls it Somona.

a different view:

It looks like a crown of thorns, but much larger than the ones I have. Anyway, here in zone 6, it would have to be a houseplant. I was wondering if anyone can give me some info on this plant. It definitely perked up once I got it home and watered it thoroughly, but now I noticed that some of the smaller lower leaves are dropping off.

Thanks for any help... Lynne

That is a pretty plant. You found a good bargin.

I have a yellow and red. I keep them in the sunny window all winter and watered it once a week and they flowered non-stop.

This is my yellow after being outside all summer. Two years ago it was small.

I love barging plant, a lot of the time with a bit of love and care they can be revived.

I just looked it up on the web and I love the idea of a house plant that loves to flower all the time that it is hot and sunny. I hope I can find the seeds or starter plant for those. Thank you for sharing. I think they are really cool.
