Poinsettias make great gifts
Poinsettias make great gifts and add holiday decor to any residence or business. It seems that every year growers present a new color to go along with the more traditional red, white,and pink. We've even seen candy-striped, green, purple, and yellow poinsettias.
Are poinsettias poisonous?
No, they are not poisonous. Urban legend is responsible for that myth, which 50% of Canadians & Americans still believe today. The Society of American Florists joined with researchers at Ohio State University to test various parts of the poinsettia plant on rats. Their conclusion was that there was no toxicity or any other side effects even when the rats were given large doses. They are considered to be non-toxic, although they may cause mild gastrointestinal upset if you attempted to eat a leaf before spitting it out. The poinsettia leaves taste disgusting, but they do not kill humans or pets.
Caring for a poinsettia indoors
Poinsettias should be watered regularly. Be careful not to over-water them, just wait until the top of the soil feels dry to the touch. If you want to grow your poinsettia in the garden after the holiday season, make sure to keep it healthy while indoors by placing the plant in a sunny, draft free location.
Can I plant my indoor poinsettia in the garden?
Yes, if where you live has a minimum temperature of about 45°. When the leaves fall in late winter, cut the stems back to the two healthiest buds and reduce watering to the bare minimum. Choose a well-draining location in your garden that gets full or partial sun, preferably against a southern exposure wall to protect them from strong winds. In areas where the temperatures drop below 45 it is best to keep them in a sunken pot that can be brought into the house as they can only tolerate a very light frost.
Poinsettias grown outdoors will often reach 8-10 feet tall, so about every 2 months regular pruning is a must. Pinching the tips of new growth will produce a much bushier plant with many more, but much smaller flower bracts. Thinning the branches out without pinching the new growth will produce much larger flower bracts.
