I received two Poinsettias this Christmas.
I think they may be having a comeback.
They are not the easiest plants to care for
and can quickly start to drop their leaves.
They require a draught-free position
but window sills are often too draughty,
especially if the plant ends up behind the curtains at night.
Avoid temperatures under 55F.
They require good light,
but must be kept away from direct sunlight.
Overwatering quickly kills the plant
but if the surface of the soil dries out they should be
Stand the pot on pebbles and keep humid.
Trying to keep the plant from year to year usually results in failure.
Chucking it out onto a beach guarantees it.
