Poinsettia Care

Light:

Place your poinsettia plant near a sunny window where it will have the most available sunlight. A window that faces south, east or west is better than one facing north. Keep the plant away from cold window panes as they are sensitive to cold.

Water: 

Water regularly and thoroughly.  Wait until soil is moderately dry in between waterings. Water immediately if leaves begin to wilt.  Mist leaves frequently.  

Temperature:

Ideally, keep the plant at 18-24°C during the daylight hours and, if possible, move it to a cooler place at night, no lower than 15°C. Avoid exposing the plant to hot or cold drafts, which may cause premature leaf drop.

Fertilizer:

Do not fertilize your plant when it is in bloom! 

Care after flowering:

The plant should be discarded.  Plants can be kept to bloom again the following year but the process is tedious and lengthy with strict lighting schedules in autumn.
