Tips to a great Poinsettia⁠

❤️Only buy a plant that has not been exposed to draughts as this can cause the leaves to drop suddenly. ⁠

❤️Keep the plant wrapped for the journey home to protect it from the cold. ⁠

❤️Do not overwater or let the plant dry out. Consistent watering is the key to a healthy plant, using tepid water if possible. If the leaves turn yellow or fall off it is incorrectly watered. Only water when the plant is noticeably dry, lift the plant up and if it feels light it needs watering. Watering can be done from the top of the pot or by standing the pot in water for half an hour and then allowing to drain freely.⁠

❤️Poinsettias need warmth and light but must be kept away from draughts including open windows, fireplaces, open doorways etc. ⁠
Temperatures between 15-22 degrees are ideal and preferably placed in a light spot.⁠
