Crown of Thorns & Desert Rose

This is tricky - the most sharpest and difficult plant ever but I still love it.
Why - because they have the ability to flower in the most hostile position.
It would be difficult too to make them come into my favorable condition to flower as they need good hot and dry weather - a good dose of hot sun which I truly lack for them to flower.
Regardless all that - they still show up with their blooms.
That's why I love them (apart from the thorns)
Yeah.. These ones are considered poisonous too.

The other is Desert Rose,
given from my neighbour who had shifted from the vicinity.
It took awhile for it to give out shoots - I thought this one is a goner as the top cut part succumb to rot.
I trimmed again but to no avail - the rot gone deeper.
The only consolation I have to note that new shoots are coming up and the rot will slowly heal itself.
(Yeah.. that is indeed a fat hope - I'm nursing secretly)
Looks like I need to do something about that wound.
