Article SummaryX

To care for a poinsettia, first, choose a spot where your poinsettia can get 6 hours of indirect sunlight each day. For example, set it near a sunny window facing east or west. Try to keep the temperature around 70°F (21°C), and make sure it never gets colder than 50°F (10°C) since it’s leaves could fall off if it gets too cold. Poinsettias don’t need a lot of water, but you should water your plant when the soil feels dry. As you water the poinsettia, stop as soon as you see water leak through the holes at the bottom to the pot. This will prevent overwatering. Poinsettias only bloom from November to March, so most people prefer to buy a new one every year for the holidays. If you’d prefer to keep your poinsettia year round, fertilize it with an all-purpose fertilizer in early January. For tips on how to pick a healthy poinsettia from the store, keep reading!
