December Daily ~ The 13th

The one about poinsettias.
I really am loving the whole feel of a 7x5 photo on a 7x5 LO.  Who am I kidding?  I'm loving every single thing about December Daily.  On the reverse of the heart, I asked myself a question: How is it that I am defeated by poinsettias every year, yet I can get two orchids to bloom and flower? Any suggestions on how to keep poinsettias alive gratefully received.

I laughed out loud as I'm a Poinsetta killer too. I manage Fuschia and Orchids but every year without fail the one my mum gives me dies while hers goes from strength to strength.

Good Luck with that, my FIL use to be able to keep them alive for a few years, they went into the basement a lot I think, he did have other plants down there as well.

I've given up on buying them! I have a window sill full of orchids which are blooming but poinsettias I always kill! Someone once told me it can be to do with the heating being on or fireplaces but I don't know if that's true as I've had them in a cooler bay window and they still die!

Seriously, my recommendation is to buy a fab fake one from "Bloom". Highly recommended!

I don't do well with them either. Have to say the fakes ones out there are beautiful so maybe go for the fake look next year.

Can't help, I'm afraid - I can't keep any plant alive, with the one exception of an aloe vera which I've had for over 15 years!!

Love your page xx
