Reblooming Poinsettias for the next season

Poinsettias are one of the longest-lasting blooming plants available. To keep it blooming all year long follow the care tips listed below:

  • During winter follow these tips:
    • When surface soil is dry to the touch, water thoroughly. Discard any excess water
    • To prolong color, keep a temperature range of 60 degrees for night and 72 degrees for day. High humidity is preferable
    • Place plant away from hot or cold drafts, and protect from cold winds
  • March 1 (St. Patrick's Day): When bracts fade, cut stems back to eight inches above soil line.
  • Continue to water regularly.
  • Lightly fertilize with a balanced all-purpose plant food every three to four weeks.
  • When temperatures are warm, place plant outdoors; first in indirect, then direct sunlight. Avoid temperatures below 50 degrees throughout the summer.
  • July 4th (Independence Day): cut back new growth stems. Repot if needed.
  • Early September (Labor Day): Move plant inside. Provide six or more hours of direct light.
  • October 1 through December: Confine plant to complete darkness for 14 hours, giving it 10 hours of natural light daily. This will set the buds and cause the bracts to color.
