What is the best fertilizer for poinsettias. I have this pale yellow colored poisettia from last November indoors. It is slowly dying and I want to revive it with some good fertilizer. Please help.

If your poinsettia is indoors you can use a liquid houseplant fertilizer (Miracle Gro, Peter's, Shultz's, etc.) Most poinsettias need to be pruned back when they begin to lose their leaves so if you have bare stems with just a few leaves atop each, prune the stems back to encourage branching of healthy new stems.
