Properties and uses:
The Poinsettia, also known as the 'Christmas Flower' is the star plant in all homes at Christmas time. Indeed, it flowers from November to February and develops at its base inflorescences of highly decorative, bright red bracts!


Looking after advice:

Keep your Poinsettia in a room at approximately 20°C, protected from direct sunrays.
The Poinsettia has fragile roots. You must therefore water it with water at ambient temperature and avoid watering it in excess or let water stagnates in its saucer. When repotting your Poinsettia, avoid tamping down the potting compost too much.

How to make your Poinsettia flower again?
At the end of blossom, cut the dead leaves and bracts and supply with a fertiliser for flowering plants. It is also possible to place it outdoors in summer. In October/November, prepare its new blossom by placing it in darkness 12 to 14 hours per day. This step is essential for the good flowering of your plant! As soon as the bracts are fully coloured, this daily action is no longer necessary and you will be able to enjoy the sight of these beautiful colours for several weeks.
