Can you imagine Christmas without Poinsettias? For many, their annual appearance marks the beginning of the Holiday Season. And it’s no surprise; Poinsettias are hands down the most popular holiday plants. Reds, pinks, whites, yellows, marbled, speckled – there are so many to choose from thanks to the tremendous interest in Poinsettia plant breeding.
Poinsettias grow best when daytime temperatures are between 70-75 degrees F. Night temperatures shouldn’t dip below 65 degrees F. To avoid leaf drop; never expose them to drafts or excessive drying heat. A few words about watering: Keep the potting soil slightly moist between waterings. After a few minutes, discard any excess water that collects in the saucer. Your plant should never be bone dry or sitting in water!
