The Technique

Poinsettias may be found from garden centers to markets throughout the Christmas season. Remove the paper from the bottom of plants & tuck them into larger containers for an effortless display. Select a bright, sunny location & they actually welcome direct light in your home. Since they are native to tropical locations, the plants will thrive beautifully. The ideal room temperature should be maintained between 65 & 75 degrees. Water poinsettias when the soil feels dry to the touch, however make certain to drain well after doing so. With these simple tips, your plants are sure to thrive for holiday entertaining & beyond.
