Holiday Poinsettia Plant Care

To keep you poinsettias looking good during the holidays, it’s a combination of light, moisture and location.  Poinsettias need lots of light,  so give them as much bright in-direct sunlight as possible inside your home.  Proper watering is key to keeping poinsettias healthy. Water them thoroughly only when the pot feels light weight and dry on the top. Do not leave plants setting in a saucer of water, they do not like wet “feet”.  Place your poinsettias in  a semi-cool humid location away from a heating vent. For added humidity set a bowl or saucer of water in close proximity to the plant.
