It turned into a large bush.

I too have always believe them to be toxic, but the researchers at a university tested it and there you go. I did skim over some information about how to keep poinsettias alive after Christmas, but I don't have enough light in my home to make plants happy for long.

Lovely! :)

Big cash crop for the indoors growers.

This what it looks like down in Närpes
in just about every major greenhouse
this time of the year:

Pretty plants as far as the eye can see.

Why only a red colour AS? They are dying them (non-toxically) every color in the rainbow.

I'm sure they grow a lot of varieties and hybrids over here, too,
but the Pohjanmaalaiset (Ostrobothnians) are rather tradition-
bound customers when it comes to Xmas. Most want them the
oldfashioned red.

I felt that way last year, in that, only the red variety will do, but this year I am up for a variety.

Here are some great decor ideas with cut poinsettia flowers, if you don't intend to keep the plant beyond Christmas, which I will not be doing. So I think I'll buy a few more plants of a variety of colors and use the flowers/leaves for my Christmas table decoration.

Nice. :)

Back in gardener school, we learned that the best way
to fight their worst and foremost natural pest enemy,
the whitefly, was by hand. Hated every sec of it! chuckle.gif
The kind of work that makes you gaah.gif !

Can't keep them completely at bay, though - where there
are poinsettias, there will be whiteflies. Beware. 13.gif
And hybrids - the teacher said - are even more susceptible
than the traditional reds.

Will there a will (to control/kill whitefly) there is a way.

Quote:Homemade Insecticide
Make a homemade insecticide to treat whiteflies on plants. Mix 1 tbsp. of liquid soap into a mixture of 2 parts rubbing alcohol and 5 parts water. Put the mixture in a spray bottle and apply it to the leaves of plants to both kill and prevent whiteflies. Mix 2 tbsp. of crushed red pepper and 6 drops of liquid dish soap into 1 gallon of water to create a hot, insect-repelling spray. Allow the homemade insecticide to soak for one day before spraying it on plants.

Red is definitely the most popular variety followed by white. I've seen increasingly more pink ones, but they won't beat the reds and whites.
