The Poinsettia is a commercially important plant species of the diverse spurge family. The species is indigenous to Mexico. It is particularly well known for its red and green foliage and is widely used in Christmas floral displays.
Poinsettias don’t like a lot of water, but need warmth and light. It can be kept close to a radiator but it must be kept away from draughts and prefers temperatures between 15-20 degrees. After Christmas, encourage your plant to become dormant by letting the soil dry out so that the leaves begin to wilt and eventually drop off. Store your plant in a cool, dry place and keep the soil slightly moist until spring. In spring, prune your Poinsettia back to around 10-15cm (4-6in) high and keep it warm.
