The poinsettia is still going... it must be just over three years now 😳🤭 I gave it a trim a couple of months ago so it’s a bit smaller now, it was getting quite leggy #poinsettia #euphorbia #euphorbia-pulcherrima #euphorbiapulcherrima #houseplant
I’ve almost felt guilty about posting it cause I knew some of you wouldn’t like it! 😂😂 soz, I honestly don’t know how it does it, I’ve no secret - it just sits under the skylight and I water it every now and then 🤷🏼♂️ @clipperty @rachelbrooks @suerichards
Lol! So everyone keeps telling me 😄 I think the roots might have been eaten a bit by the same fly larvae on the begonias. I was thinking I might downsize first to get the roots back up to size as I don’t want them to get too wet in this pot. But I won’t know until I lift it out the pot and see how bad/good it is already 👍🏼 @cyndi
So this is my Poinsettia - and I’ve used my coffee cup as a comparison to show its size! It’s in its second year now, although I didn’t attempt this year to make it go red so it will stay green for now. It’s done very well since repotting it at the beginning of summer. It lives away from air fluctuations (no open windows, no drafts) and is directly under a skylight. Just gave it a little feed this morning too #euphorbiapulcherrima #euphorbia #poinsettia #houseplant
Does anyone else still have their Poinsettia? Mine's doing really well. Today I repotted it using a mix of John Innes no.3 and normal multi purpose compost, and mixed in some perlite. There's lots of healthy new growth showing 😀👍🏼 #poinsettia #euphorbia #euphorbiapulcherrima #houseplant #euphorbia-pulcherrima
I have a poinsettia which is 4 years old!! Me and my other half thought we killed it earlier this year but we put it on the window ledge and it's coming back to life....I'll post a picture. What I've never managed to achieve is red leaves but I'm worried I'll definitely kill it if I put it in a dark room!!
I'm on a roll now, photographing all the other plants in the house 😆. Who still has their Poinsettia? I don't know how I have as I've done nothing to it but it doesn't seem to be dying! #poinsettia #euphorbiapulcherrima #houseplant #euphorbia #euphorbia-pulcherrima
