Apparently they don't like sudden changes in temp if for example it's near a window that is sometimes opened.

Was just kidding with you. Hope the plant improves for you. They can go into dormancy and need special care at that time. It is early for that I think. 👍❤️

comment
crabby58

More than ok Diane🙃my thinking got ahead of my typing🙉yes, I've been reading up on poinsettia care as to how to get them to grow new leaves..seems humidity helps a lot so I will try the same treatment as our African Violets-setting them on pebbles with water gives them humidity☺👍🤞🤞 @hkyfvr

comment
belindah

I also repotted mine ...into a slightly larger pot. I’ve moved it to a windowsill where the window isn’t opened very often. I also heard they like humidity so I’m going to try sitting it on wet pebbles and I also have a fine water spray. I really don’t want to give up with this plant...in the past, I admit I’ve ended up throwing it on the compost heap soon after Christmas but I’m going to really try to find out how to help this one to thrive. They’re quite tricky it seems.
