Watch out! This plant could cause allergic reactions to pets or young children who consume it by mistake. If your dog, cat, or child is very mordelón, we recommend keeping it out of reach. It is not a lethal plant, but it is always better to take precautions.
Light: Poinsettias prefer a lot of bright indirect light. Never leave it under direct sun, as it will dry out.
Watering: we recommend watering your plant twice a week. Make sure that the soil is kept in the middle: neither too dry, nor waterlogged, but rather moist.
Humidity: these plants enjoy moisture. To keep her happy you can spray her once a week. Temperature: although in theory it is an outdoor plant, poinsettias do not tolerate cold well due to its tropical origin. In general, they do better between 13-22ºC.
Pruning: if you plan to take care of your poinsettia so that it lasts all year long, you will have to prune it enough in April. This will give you strength to grow the rest of the year.
What you should avoid
Avoid leaving your poinsettia exposed to drafts, or near heat sources. In general, any extreme temperature change does not please you very much.
Excessive watering is one of the most common causes of death in these plants. It's fine that you want to take care of her, but don't overdo it! In any case, less is more.
In addition to giving a Christmas touch to any place, this plant acts as a natural humidifier, which is very beneficial for people suffering from dry airways.
It is also an air purifying plant, which will eliminate toxins and other toxic substances from the environment.
