    rejoice in your success and start cutting off light in about October ( stick it in the spare room with no light )

    Mine still has the red leaves but no flowers. Mine flowered a second time about Easter but the second lot of teeny flowers are long gone. There are now new green leaves sprouting between the red ones.

    I am looking forward to trying to get it to colour up again for xmas.

    Mines been on an unheated south facing windowsill since it was purchased. How have you kept yours?


  • my poinsettia is in the spare bedroom on the windowsill. i just move it when the sun is out
