I was wondering if anyone has managed to successfully carry over a poinsettia from one Christmas to the next. I have been told that it's difficult to get it back to it's former glory the following year. I have read that approx 12 weeks before Christmas it should be placed in a dark warm place for no less than 12 hours a day which will encourage it to produce it's bright red bracts ready for Christmas. My poinsettia is thriving very well so far from last year and I fancy having a go. Has anyone else successfully done it and if you have, am I on the right track?
