HOW TO CARE FOR
- Winter Rose
- Pink Princettia
Poinsettias are the most popular flowering plant used to decorate homes and businesses during the holiday season.
Native to Mexico, poinsettias are known for their colorful bracts (leaves) that come in a myriad of colors and patterns from the ever-festive red and green, to white, burgundy and pink. Easy to care for, Poinsettias thrive for many weeks and make a great holiday gift.
When should I water my Poinsettia?
To see if your plant needs water, stick your finger about an inch down into the soil. If the soil feels dry, water. If the soil feels moist, do not water. If you are unsure, check again in a few days.
Never mist your foliage. Misting leaves causes fungal issues and disease. The only plants that are okay to mist are ferns and carnivorous plants.
Poinsettia grow best in bright indirect light.
Poinsettias typically stay the size they were when purchased with little if any growth.
Poinsettias prefer moist, well-drained soil.
TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITY
Poinsettia prefer average indoor temperatures and humidity levels away from the extremes of cold drafts or warm heating vents.
PRUNING & FERTILIZING
Prune away broken branches if needed. An all-purpose fertilizer can be applied after blooming.
ARE POINSETTIA PET SAFE?
According to the ASPCA, Poinsettias are toxic to dogs, cats and horses.
Overwatering a Poinsettia will cause the leaves to turn yellow and fall off. Stems will turn brown or black if the plant has root rot.
