How To Not Kill
Your Christmas Poinsettia
Or: How Poinsettia's Are Just Like You & Me
Watering: Plants Get Thirsty Too
Examine the soil daily, when it's dry to touch get a glass of water & pour until your little heart can't pour no more. In other words, until it's draining out of the bottom.
People don't like sleeping in wet beds & neither does your Poinsettia, so don't leave it in standing water.
Sunlight: Working on that Christmas Base Tan
The Poinsettia likes to look outside longing for the days of summer just as much as you & I do. For that reason, you should place it near a sunny window where it will have the most available sunlight. No suntan lotion necessary.
Reflowering: Brining your Poinsettia Back To Life
This is totally possible but to be honest you're probably going to get another one next Holiday season so why bother?
Hungry: Why Not?
Oh, and don't eat the leafs because you might die.
