My Poinsettia is still in bloom in an outside planter. What is the proper care for an outside potted Poinsettia, if any.

After the flowers have faded, pinch your plant back to encourage lots of new branches. Pinch throughout the summer to encourage branching but stop pinching by the first of September. Your poinsettia should bloom for you again in December. Enjoy!
