Gift wrapping Options available
Poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) is a festive favorite and great addition to your holiday decor. They much prefer a steady room temperature between 65°F and 77°F. Poinsettias need warmth and plenty of natural, filtered light, so being close to a radiator shouldn’t be a problem. Don’t keep them near the fire, doorways or windows. Get into the habit of inspecting your plants leaves for any that are turning yellow, falling off or curling up. This indicates the plant is usually too dry. It’s not always easy to find the right place for your poinsettia to sit for the right heat and light, but once you’ve found it, you’ll be rewarded with a beautiful, happy plant throughout the festive season. To keep those stunning red leaves vibrant and the green leaves a rich green, you can mist your plant to raise the humidity levels. The mist keeps the plant happy and saves you time in the long run too. There is no set number of days when to water your poinsettia. It’s simple really, pop your finger on the soil, if it’s bone dry, water it. Don’t over water it though. What you want to avoid is the roots sitting in water, which will rot the roots – this isn’t good for any of your houseplants.
