Poinsettia Care Tips

Poinsettia Care TipsPoinsettias are synonymous with the holidays and are a great plant to have during that time. Poinsettias are inexpensive, easy to handle/care for and fit in almost any space as they come in various sizes.

Good plant care begins with purchasing healthy plants. Avoid buying poinsettias with thin or wilting foliage, broken stems or have an otherwise unhealthy appearance. Handle poinsettias with care and avoid rough handling which can break stems.

Temperature & Lighting 

Un-wrap poinsettias as soon as you bring them home to allow exposure to fresh air. Temperatures comfortable to humans are most ideal for poinsettias (low seventies during day time, low sixties at night). Hot/cold drafts should be avoided. Read More »
