I wanted to post some of my poinsettia pics I took today. These babies were from 2009 Christmas season. I raised them thru the summer of 2010 in the flower beds, one didn't make it. But these 2 huge beauties did and were able to brighten the solar room thru Christmas and New Years 2010/11 and onward.
And I've been waiting for the center yellow flower to bloom. This is what poinsettias do - just because the leaves turn white or red does not mean they are blooming. The center must turn yellow and they are getting beautiful. They sure drink a lot of water tho - but they are over 2 feet in height too.
I do a lot of misting their leaves to keep them healthy. I hope you enjoyed your Christmas flowers too. This is the first time ever I have carried over Poinsettias for such a long time. It is fun.
