I have a Poinsettia that I have kept through last
year. It is looking great and healthy .
I need to know what do I need to do to get it to turn red again.
Poinsettias are beautiful, but re-blooming can be difficult without a
rigorous control of light in the autumn months. That is why, in all but the
most southern states of the U.S. they end up in the trash after Christmas.
There are a wealth of websites on the care of poinsettias if you search the
"Poinsettia blooming techniques". The "secret" seems to be to keep the plant
in TOTAL DARKNESS for the fall months prior to December. It would appear
that now is the time to act!!
