Poinsettias


Poinsettias (Euphorbia pulcherrima) like bright natural light, in a spot out of the direct sun. You can extend your poinsettia's flowering time by keeping it at an even temperature, away from drafts and ducts; and they should not be exposed to cold temperatures. Though only toxic if ingested in great amounts, place your poinsettia out of reach of children and pets. When the soil surface is dry, water thoroughly, and discard excess water.
