Last Year’s Poinsettia – Update
My family gets together for Christmas on December 24th, however, we also honor the January 5th date as well, in order to unite ourselves with our families abroad.
Well, I have a mixed bag here, since I have been traveling extensively during the most important Poinsettia nurture time, between October and December, so I was not able to follow the recommended TLC process.
This is how it looked on December 24th.
Here is a close up picture of the flower.
The plant continues to grow, and the flowers are getting fuller, and more vibrant.
Actually, I am very pleased with the results, considering the fact that I have not been home several days at a time to care of it properly, so Mother Nature was taking over for me, regulating the daylight, and darkness, requirements.
I will try to keep up with it again for next year, to experiment for how long it will last, and still look presentable.
This year I did not even buy a new Poinsettia, since I knew I was losing my job at the end of December, so this was a pleasant surprise for me to have my last year Poinsettia bloom for Christmas.
If any of you also were caring for your previous years Poinsettia, please share your stories.
Happy New Year!!
