Ok .... you came to our open house, purchased a few poinsettias and need to know how to care for them now.

Here are a few tips:
* Place the poinsettia where it will receive good indirect sunlight in your home.
* Keep them away from large warm or cold drafts.
* Ideally poinsettias prefer daytime temperatures of 60 to 70 degrees. and don't like ANY temps below 50.
* Then check the soil daily, to make sure it is damp. Never allow them to sit in water and water when dry.

And an interesting fact: Poinsettias were introduced to the United States in 1825 by our first ambassador to Mexico, Joel Poinsette.
