|I have had good luck with this plant, for the last 4 years it has flower during winter, yet for some reason drops most of the green flowers. Any idea?

|The low light levels indoors can cause the green leaves to drop from your plant. Fluctuation in soil moisture and cold temperatures can also cause leaf drop. You may need to provide a source of supplemental light to your plant during January and February. Poinsettias like temperatures of about 70F degrees so try to keep it warm and out of drafts. Hope this helps!
