Poinsettia Care Instructions
Who’d have guessed, this iconic Christmas plant is actually a tropical plant!
Light - Poinsettias like a space that receives bright natural sunlight but not direct beams. They require bright natural light in order to keep their colourful bracts.
Water - Poinsettias like a good drink once their soil approaches dryness. Do not let the soil dry completely. Whenever possible, allow the water to drain freely, just make sure your plant is never sitting in soggy soil for long periods of time.
Avoid contact with the milky white secretion that may ooze from points where leaves have folded or fallen off. If you happen to get it on you, wash the affected area immediately with soap and warm water. Keep away from pets.
*Just like people, each plant is a unique living thing and may have varying needs, especially in their individual locations. These are basic guidelines that may have to be augmented slightly depending on the environment you place your plant in, as well as frequency and amount of water given.
