Poinsietta tip that I'm going to try

2 months ago

I bought a poinsietta today because I couldn't resist even though it is a little early for me. It has rounded leaves!

The cashier told me they were new this year. She also asked me if I knew how to keep them alive. I said no, I consider them disposable. She said - it’s a 6” pot, so put 6 ice cubes on the surface of the soil once a week. Apparently most people over water them. If you think about it, they grow wild in Mexico and there is not a lot of rain there. I’m gonna give it a try.
