The Q&A Archives: Frostbight

Question: My crown of thorns suffered considerable frostbight and the leaves and flowers and the tip of each branch are brown and dead. Should I remove the or will new growth form over them?

Answer: The frosted plant parts are dead so you can safely prune them from your Crown of Thorns. If you do not cut off the dead plant parts, new growth will appear from beneath the damage and eventually the dead and damaged parts will fall off on their own. Either way, your Crown of Thorns should be just fine in a couple of months. Enjoy!
