How can I keep my poinsettal plants for as long as possible.

Any advice?

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
