Thanks for telling me to be careful about them getting cold next to a window. That is exactly what I did.
I will go move them now.
My grandmother raised two big huge ones for my winter wedding 35 years ago.
She was so worried she couldn't get them to bloom, but she did.

Hi LQA-
Oh how nice of your grandma! I kept my winter wedding poinsettias for the summer but then they pooped out.

Oh you are welcome.
My grandma sure had a green thumb.
She kept those poinsettas year after year. They were very big and very tall.

I tried a couple of times - once I ended up with white flies and the other - well you move a lot when you are young and when you move you question your wisdom on some things you want to keep.
