Growing a poinsettia:
The poinsettia is a plant of the Euphorbie family, of Mexican origin; during the summer it bears high temperatures without major problems, during the winter it fears cold and frost, and you must be cultivated in a place where the minimum temperature does not fall below 12-15 ° C, otherwise it tends to lose the foliage. All year long we water our Christmas star regularly, increasing the slightly damp soil, but letting it dry slightly between one watering and another. During the winter remember to vaporize the foliage with demineralized water. To obtain the large inflorescences each year, they form fertilizers for flowering plants in autumn and winter, water regularly and keep the plant in an unlit place, even by electric light, for at least 14-16 hours a day.
