Jose,

You can prune it some now if you like but that is up to you. I wouldn't wait much longer though as it needs time to regrow and then be able to develop color before the holidays. In my opionion it is getting close to being too late to do such pruning.

Let me refer you to the following web sites which will provide a lot of great info on caring for your poinsettia plant.
