Aside from a Christmas tree, one of the most prominent symbols of Christmas is the Pointsettia. A real Pointsettia plant is beautiful part of the holidays and with proper care, can last for months. Remember to keep Pointsettias in warm spaces, away from drafts. The tricky thing about buying Pointsettia is that they don’t like the cold, but the weather during the buying season is cold. So, when buying a pointsettia, make sure it is wrapped and transported in a warm car. Don’t stop to run errands and leave the plant in the car. When you get home, find places in the house away from doors and heat vents. If the pointsettia you buy is a gift, take it out of the wrapping until it is time to give – it won’t like sitting in the wrap for long periods. Poinsettias also like even moisture. You want to water the plant thoroughly and then empty the drip tray. Pointsettia are available seasonably in a variety of colour and styles and very reasonably priced.
