I've found them easy to grow if you keep them on the drier side of moist, rather than the wetter side of moist. To get the red colouring back next winter you have to exclude light for part of the day. If you can keep it in a spare bedroom with the door kept closed this will do the trick. Start around October and you should be fine.

But at this time of year there are probably some poinsettias needing a bit of tlc
