Caring For Your Poinsettias

Poinsettias are one of the most popular flowers for the holidays. By following these care tips your poinsettia should last into late winter:

  • Place in a room with bright natural light but avoid direct sunlight.
  • When surface soil is dry to the touch, water thoroughly. Discard any excess water sitting in the saucer.
  • Keep room temperature at 72 degrees for day and 60 degrees for night. High humidity is preferable.
  • Place plant away from hot or cold drafts.
  • Keep out of reach of children and pets as poinsettias can be mildly toxic.
