hello everybody, i really hope you can help me with this. a few days ago i found this plant in front of my building, in a big terracotta vase, broken into pieces. i guess somebody broke it while moving it and just got rid of it.
the problem is i have no clue what this plant is and consequentially don't know how much to water it, in the last 3 days i've been giving it approx a cup a day, but the leaves started yellowing, sign the plant is sad and stressed. too much water? too little? or just the painful experience of being in a broken vase and abandoned on the curb (temperature was in the low 40s') was too much for this girl?
it has several stalks, with short, not very sharp thorns all along them. the stalks have an approximately squared section and the leaves (drop shaped) are in little bunches only at the end of them.
i feel super lame not to be able to post pics of it, but i have them available.
thanks thanks thanks
even if plant doesn't survive, i need the name because I'm gonna buy one to replace it, i immediately fell in love with the quirky look it has.
