Although Poinsettias will grow outdoors if protected from prolonged freezes, follow these instructions for an optimal display indoors for the holidays!
Temperature: Keep the temperature fairly consistent at 65 to 75⁰ during the day and a little cooler at night but not below 60⁰. Don’t allow contact with cold win-dow panes. Also avoid drafts.
Light: Locate near a sunny window but out of direct light, in bright filtered light.
Moisture: Check the soil moisture daily. When the soil surface is dry to the touch, water until it flows freely out the drainage hole. Warmer temperatures and dryer air will necessitate more frequent watering. If wilting occurs, immediately water thoroughly and repeat 5 minutes later. Those foil wraps are festive but make sure you either create holes in the bottom for drainage or remove them to water the plant. Similarly, discard the water sitting in a saucer after watering. Roots will be damaged if the plant is allowed to sit in water.
