  • Continue to monitor the water, temperature, and sunlight for the poinsettia plant regularly.
  • Fertilize in the spring and fall seasons.
  • Put the poinsettia plants outside in the summer in partially shaded area.a5
  • In July, pinch each stem back an inch to encourage branch development and fullness in the plant.
  • Start putting the plant in the dark in the evening hours as of October to help control when it re-blooms.
  • Stop the evening darkness treatment toward the end of November and put it back near a window to stimulate flower buds and start the blooming process.
