- Provided the poinsettia plant is given the proper environmental conditions, it should begin to regrow within weeks.
- It needs a minimum of six hours of bright (but not direct) sunlight each day.
- Recommend placing it by a well-lit window, so that it can receive the proper amount of indirect sunlight.
- East-facing windows are best so that they can catch the morning’s glow and bask in the afternoon’s shade.
- Make sure that no part of your plant touches the windowpane, as this may harm the poinsettia.
- Poinsettia plants should be watered thoroughly, taking care not to drown them by ensuring adequate drainage is available.
- Likewise, avoid letting them sit in water-filled saucers, which can lead to root rot.
- Overwatering will kill the plant.
- Water once you notice the surface of the compost starting to dry out.
