Kerry I like how yours is part red and part green !! So cool looking !! I'm really not sure what keeps them red. Maybe air temps ? @kez001uk

@sherrisgarden I think it must be temperature. Mine is in my living room but it’s not warm constantly. At night it gets very cold so I think that’s what’s causing the marbling. Yours just looks fantastic ❤️

Mine was indoors in a window sill. Just now moved it outside. Let's see if it stays healthy. We've been having cold nights here. Not sure how it will like that. Because it's unusual for us . @kez001uk

@sherrisgarden it’ll be interesting to see if the colours change with the temperature. But I expect it’ll be fine outdoors in your climate. Gonna be a long time before I get to put mine outside 😂

Look !! There's wet stuff on petals !! Low and behold Mother Nature has blessed some of us with more rain. But.... The folks in Malibu, CA are having a rough time with mudslides. For the life of me I will Never understand why after we have the brush fires there is Always rain.. There is no vegetation to absorb the rain because it's been burned up. Hence the mudslides. Its all very much a mix of emotions. #redpointsettia #red #redflowers #rain #raindrops #wet #weneedrain #drought #mudslides

Happy plant mom.. Shelley the funny thing is that the day before I took this picture, I was upset because when I checked the soil it was soaking wet as though I had just watered it. Which I did not...because they're native to Mexico I figured the soil was too wet .Go Figure. The plant is in dining room south facing window that has a cool draft coming through it. I Don't even know what's up.. Wish I had something specific to offer. @ShelleySnyder

😄 And I didn’t realise they were from Mexico till a couple of years ago, went on holidays there and they were all over the hotel grounds. Nice to see them in their natural environment.

The poinsettia is the Floral Emblem of our City so you can imagine the proliferation of the beautiful poinsettia in Brisbane. The abundance of the tree is apparent when in bloom. I have pasted a link giving an outline of the City's history with regard to the poinsettia. Although it is a native of Mexico, it was chosen as the Brisbane City's Floral Emblem back in 1930. The City's representative Football Team even bears it as part of it's official Crest. 😊 ..

Received my first one of the season today. They're sentimental to me because my Grandmother had them in her yard. #redflower #pointsettia-red #pointsettia #firstoftheseason #happyholidays #sentimental #grandmasgarden #euphorbia #euphorbiapulcherrima
