Dave I loved this article. I never understood how to get it to turn red again, so always threw them out. Thank you so much, now I am going to try it.

I enjoyed the article, Dave. Several years ago I was able to regrow a couple of mine and they lived for 3 years or so in large pots. Got very big and colored up nicely each winter. Last few years I have not been able to get any to live beyond spring. Maybe try the way you suggested. Thumbs up

I tend to consider all Euphorbias as equally toxic even if it seems true that poinsettias have less toxins than other species of that genus. Caution with these plants seems wise.

: Poinsettias are NOT as poisonous as you think they are. According to POISINDEX (the primary source used by Poison Control Centers) a 50 pound child would actually have to eat around 500 leaves to have a toxic reaction. It's still best to discourage pets and children from tasting it as it can cause nausea and diarrhea. If you have sensitive skin or a latex allergy however, the sap can cause contact dermatitis.
