Many of you may have bought poinsettias for Christmas decorations or you may have received one as a Christmas present. Contrary to popular belief, poinsettias are not poisonous. They also don’t need a lot of care to stay on long enough after the holidays. It may have taken several months of special care to produce your Christmas poinsettia, but you will need to give it very little care to keep it looking great. The most important thing to remember about poinsettias is that they are semi-tropical plants.
Wrap poinsettias in a protective pouch whenever you transport them outside when the temperature is 50 degrees F or below. Once inside, do not place them in a place that receives a cold draft, such as near a window or near a door that opens often. High temperatures are just as damaging. Do not place the poinsettia on the TV or in front of a hot air vent. Poinsettias don’t require direct light, but place them where they will receive some light. Water the plant when the soil feels dry to the touch. Water thoroughly, making sure the soil is watered throughout. You don’t need to fertilize the plant during the holidays. Once the poinsettia begins to lose its appeal after the holidays, the best bet is to throw it away. Other plants make houseplants more attractive.
