Palmbob, This is a Great Article! Very informative! I have tried several different times to keep these jewels, to no avail. Now I have a guide to go by! :D
Thanks, Joey.

I have several planted in my yard and love them year round. Thank you for posting this guide. You hit on a couple of issues I was unaware of.

My grandma, who lived in Costa Rica for many, many years told me about the large "trees" there. This was a great article and I learned lots!

Poinsettias and cats? Not sure there is a relationship. Never seen a cat eat a poinsettia, but if they did, they would probably drool a lot

Great article. My poinsettas are still looking great this year. Planning to follow the instructions to see if I can keep the around for next season.

Thanks for a great article.
My poinsetta from last year is under the dining table.
It is slowly turning red again, but probably won't be all red for Xmas!
