Care of Poinsettias

Posted by sgjenna at 4:05 PM on Sep 20, 2016


  • Place in indirect sunlight
  • 6 hours of light daily is ideal
  • Keep plant from touching cold window panes
  • Keep away from warm or cold drafts and open doors or windows
  • Ideal daytime temps should be between 60-70 degrees and nighttime temps between 55-60.
  • Keep soil moist but not wet. Water with lukewarm water until water runs through to drainage saucer then discard water in saucer. Poinsettias do not like "wet feet"
  • Do not fertilize poinsettias in bloom.
