Maroon Poinsettia

A traditional Christmas plant, Poinsettia plants like to be kept on the dry side. Water as often as needed, but allow soil surface to dry before watering again, then soak the soil. Be certain all excess water is drained away and discarded. Fertilizer is not necessary, if your poinsettia is to be seasonal. If kept throughout the winter, after blooming reduce the amount of water and allow the plant to go dormant. Move the plant to a cooler position but not below 50°F. You can begin fertilizing in the spring, and every two weeks until early December with a 1 teaspoon per gallon fertilizer solution.

4 1/2" to 8 1/2" potted.
