How do Poinsettias start - from seed? Is there a way to buy seeds and start growing my own?

Even on a commercial basis, poinsettias are normally grown from tip (stem) cuttings in order to reliably and consistently start plants with the desired characteristics such as good color and vigor. For this reason, I have never seen seeds for retail sale. If you want to start some of your own, the cuttings are quite easy to do in early summer.
