We don't sell as many of these pretty plants as we used to but they still make a great gift option and they are easier to take care of than you may think! Tip of the Day: Looking after a Poinsettia Position the plant in good light away from direct sunlight and draughts. Poinsettias originate from warmer climates than our area, so avoid temperatures below 55F. Over watering will quickly damage the plant. Wait until the surface of the compost begins to dry out, then water thoroughly. It's as easy as that so get out and get those Poinsettias for your home or office!
