Caring for Your Poinsettias
We've probably all got at least one in our homes right now. Here's some tips on keeping your poinsettias looking good long after the tree is down.
Poinsettias need light and heat. Remember that they are native to Mexico. So place them in your brightest window and keep them warm (at least 72F during the day and no lower than 60F at night).
Water when the soil is dry to the touch. Don't worry, they'll let you know when they need watering as the leaves will droop and curl. But don't let them dry out as the leaves will fall off and it will be a full year before they grow new leaves.
Follow my step by step instructions to keep your poinsettias growing so that you can have beautiful plants again next Christmas. All steps are on the blog.
