Poinsettias are cheery plants that are widely grown indoors over Christmas for their brightly coloured bracts. They are often disposed of once they start to fade, but with a little care, you can keep them all year and the leaves will colour up again the following year.

Process :

 

1. Prepare a planting spot. Look for a place where the poinsettia will get morning sun as well as light or partial shade during the heat of the afternoon.
2. Enrich the soil by adding organic compost if necessary. Poinsettias prefer rich, well-drained soil.
3. Fertilize the poinsettia. You can apply at the start of the growing season or fertilize the plant with compost.
4. Water the poinsettia throughout the growing season.
5. Prune the poinsettia. Pinch small growing shoots from poinsettias occasionally throughout the growing season to encourage the plants to flower.
6. Repot the poinsettia in early summer.

1. Ornamental Purpose

Do's

1. At the end of spring, cut all growth to a couple of inches above the soil and repot it in new soil. 
2. keep the plant in total darkness between 5 p.m. and 8 a.m. It will then re-flower and produce colorful bracts.

 

Don'ts

1. Avoid overhead watering, which could cause fungal disease to form on the leaves of the plant.
2. Stop watering when saturation slows, and before excess water pools on the soil's surface.
