Poinsettias are durable easy- to- grow houseplants that take little but bright light and water to be beautiful all winter long. Here’s a few easy tips.

  • Light-Poinsettias can be used to brighten up a dark corner of the room as long as they occasionally get to sunbathe in a warm sunny window.
  • Water- Just pick up the pot! If the plant feels light, water. If your plant is in a cool dark spot, it’s going to dry out slowly. If it’s in a bright sunny window, check at least once a week.
  • Temperature- Avoid extremes. Like most house plants, poinsettias prefer normal indoor temperatures. Avoid drafty entrances or heating vents.
  • When “the party’s over”, the holidays have come and gone, treat the poinsettias like any other houseplant. Bright light occasional water and a little misting if possible. The plant can go outside, mid-April when nights are 60 degrees.
