Care & feeding of your new family member

Do you want to know how to take care of your new poinsettia?  Then you need to understand where they come from.

Imagine Mexico or Central America…..ready?....they are places where it can get blistering hot and dry.  And just when you think everything will bake and you are getting out your eggs to try frying them on the pavement, the rain comes and drenches everything.  That about covers how to take care of our poinsettias.  Keep them out of the sun and away from the radiators please.  Leave them alone for a week.  Pluck any dried leaves and give them a good watering.  Then take the week off.

Take care when transporting them, not to shock or bake them and watch the stems – they snap.
