Poinsettias prefer conditions in our Texas homes to be warmer during the day and cooler during the night. Ideally, poinsettias thrive in temperatures around 65-75° F during the day and about 60° F at night. Finding a balance close to these temperatures will work for your plants and keep them happy. Avoid placing your plants where cold air or hot air is blasting on its leaves.

Poinsettias are a tropical plant. They prefer partial sunlight to partial shade throughout the day. Place your plants near (but not next to) a window that is south, east, or west facing for plenty of indirect sunlight. Avoid placing them directly next to a window that becomes overly hot throughout the day and avoid placing the plants where it touches cold windows.

Proper watering is the key to any plant’s health. You do not want your poinsettias to dry out or be overly watered. When you first purchase your plants, it is a good idea to remove your plant from decorative foil and give it a good drink. Allow the water to soak through the plant and its roots before returning it to the decorative coverings. From then, water your plant about 1 time a week. The best rule of thumb is to check the moisture level in the soil. If the soil is slightly moist to the touch, then its good to go. If the soil feels dry, then watering is needed. If your home is dry, watering may be needed more frequently, as poinsettias love humidity.
