The key points in caring for your poinsetta (Euphorbia pulcherrima) are adequate light, care in watering and stable temepratures both day and night.  For best results, maintain 65°-70°F during the day; 55°-60°F at night. Your plants should get 4 hours of direct sunlight daily and be watered only after the top of the soil has dried out. Environmental humidity above 50% is desirable.

For additional information on poinsetta care please refer to our guides Care of Holiday Gift Plants and Popular Houseplant Profiles.
