Poinsettia Care Tips – Choosing and Caring for this Holiday Favorite

Whether you bought a poinsettia to enjoy yourself or received one as a gift, here’s a video clip from Laura at GardenAnswer that shares some helpful poinsettia care tips.

From what to look for when choosing a poinsettia, to keeping a poinsettia plant beautiful throughout the holiday season and beyond, it’s all here.

Whether you are a seasoned plant veteran or a newbie, this video answers a lot of the commonly asked questions that we hear frequently about poinsettias.

We think you’re going to find this video helpful, especially if you love beautiful poinsettias as much as we do. Check it out and see for yourself.


I hope this video helps you to better understand how to choose a poinsettia, care for it, and how to continue to keep it growing after the holiday season.

Choosing the right poinsettia

Besides the tips in the video, I would add that you should avoid buying a poinsettia that is displayed in a protective plant sleeve, like the ones shown here.

They should be used for transporting them only and should be removed promptly upon arrival.

How to care for it through the holiday season

No matter what color or variety, basic poinsettia care is the same.

  • Provide bright light
  • Temperatures between 65°F – 75°F. No drafty areas.
  • Water when top layer of soil is dry
  • Provide extra humidity if possible

Really, that’s pretty much all there is to it.

How do I get it to rebloom?

An overview of the steps needed to get a poinsettia to rebloom is covered well in the video. Most people find that the process is a lot more work than they would like to do.

I can’t blame them, either. Poinsettia plants are not that expensive, so most people don’t bother unless they’re up for the challenge.

I’m pleased to have you here on this website. This is Greg, and I’m simply here to share a bunch of truly great flower and plant videos with you. That’s it! That’s all. 🙂

Well, that may not be my only reason for me doing this…

Listen, right off the bat, I have an admission I want to make. The truth is, I really built this video resource for myself.

See, I enjoy referencing plant care videos (like the “Poinsettia Care Tips” presentation you just viewed), and I honestly just wanted a place where I could re-watch all of my favorites under one roof.

I also believe that there is no shortage of opportunity online, which is another motivating factor in my decision to create this site. I’m just “keepin’ it real” with you. 🙂

If I’m able to build an amazing video blog that other people love half as much as I do, and I can possibly make a little cash with it, then I personally don’t see an issue.

I’m a pretty straightforward person if you couldn’t tell. But allow me to put you at ease… I’m not here to sell anything.

If my sponsors happen to entice you with their offers, I’d be super grateful! If you’re just not interested, I’ll still like ya. I just appreciate your readership. 🙂

Sharing cool floral content with good people like you is just plain fun for me! 😉

And that’s the purpose that this site serves. It’s pretty much just a place for people who love flowers to get together and watch some cool videos. If that sounds like something you can appreciate, then I’d love to see you again. 😉

So keep in touch! I’ll just keep sharing items touching on subjects like plant care, wedding flower tutorials, and home decor ideas… and so forth.
