How can I keep my poinsettal plants for as long as possible.
Hi Roses. I'm cheating really, having to confess that poinsettas are one of the few plants I'm not keen on . Sorry.
I have found this link for you though.
Hope this helps.
I am a great killer of poinsettias because I want to water and fuss them,my daughter on the other hand who has not a clue about plants has kept her poinsettia just by sheer neglect.They don't like a lot of water ,draughts and have to stay in the dark for the leaves to turn red ,so I am trying the neglect method.
Honestly -it not worth the effort to keep it going for another year-it a lot of faffing around with the amount of daylight-leave that to the professional growers and threat it as an annual treat to be discarded when finished
Thanks for all replies.
I think I will take the advice.
Keep trying then give up
Thanks for help to Jean R.
I tried and it is A good page.
