Minor miracle, horticulturally speaking


Yup, my poinsettia is still with us eight months after Christmas.


This has never happened before.

I had 4 poinsettias that were at least 5 or 6 years old when I left Florida. They had grown HUGE! Think HEDGE. srsly.

Stick 'em in the ground and every once in a while give 'em some miracle grow. They don't like light at night. Those 2 things are pretty much the secrets to happy poinsettias. :)

Spookie, isn't it? I think all Poinsettias should die a couple of weeks after Christmas. After while, it just becomes awkward. lol

We are impressed at your green thumb Patti - what a feat!! That would never happen at my house - it usually ends up in the trash 3 weeks after Christmas :) I'll send you mine this year - lol!!

I think that poinsetta is so happy with you that it just has to hang around :)

What Dianne said! Though this does remind me that I should plan what I'm going to do for Christmas cards early this year!
