Poinsettia Care

This is the time of year that your local nurseries (and grocery stores and Home Depot and the list goes on) have stocked up the ever popular holiday favorite plant: the Poinsettia

These plants come in all sorts of colors now and can be just so beautiful! But the real question is: How do you keep them ALIVE?!

Well, we are here to help! Here are some get tips for keeping that poinsettia of yours thriving through the holiday season.

Lighting Preference: High (so if you can, place your poinsettia in a really sunny and happy spot)

Water Needs: Moist at all times (but be sure that it's not wet, you can quickly kill a plant with over watering) If you keep your poinsettia in a plastic saucer, we actually suggest that you water through the saucer. The soil in the pot will soak up the water from the base of the saucer. 

Water Stress Symptoms: Sheds yellow leaves then the poinsettia is too dry. Sheds green lease and colored bracts (what looks like the flower) then the poinsettia has much to much water. 

Other tips: A. Add 1/2" of water to the saucer B. In low light, keep the soil on the dryer side C. Use room temp water D. Remove yellow leaves E. Keep poinsettia in a warm location, they don't like being cold. 

Good Luck! We'd love to hear how your poinsettia is doing!
