Poinsettia and Light

By Dutchlady1

When planting the Christmas Poinsettia out in your yard after the holidays, make sure there is no light (like a porch light or street light) shining on it. In order for it to get the wonderful colored bracts next season, it needs a period of complete darkness.

Absolutely right. Thumbs up Hetty.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
