Poinsettia Rescue 911

Have you ever said, "Oops, I think I killed my poinsettia!"

It happens to the best of us. While you're frantically shopping and baking for the holidays, caring for your poinsettia can become the last thing on your mind. After a few weeks of neglect, that once beautiful poinsettia plant might look almost dead. But don't panic! You might be able to rescue your poinsettia plant with some special care.

Poinsettia 911 Plan
1. Rush your poinsettia to the sink and water throughly.
2. Leave the poinsettia in a tray of water for a couple hours.
3. Remove the tray and let drain.
4. Place the poinsettia in a sunny window.

Unless your poinsettia is already crispy, it will probably recover within 24 hours.

That soaking idea works for us sometimes. However, my employees many times over water and if water is left in a pot cover the roots rot and it is curtains
