Be sure while inside to keep well clear for heating or cooling vents and high air flow areas this way the product will last the best. Poinsettia prefers a well drained soil and does not like being water logged water regularly.

To plant them is a simple operation. Just pick a spot in the garden where it gets plenty of indirect sun and the soil is perfectly drained. A little tip is to add some compost and put it in the bottom of the hole and then put a thin layer of soil over this to prevent the roots form burning. When you are planting, just knock the poinsettia out of the pot and plant in into the hole. Add some more compost on top or some slow release fertilizer and these plants will thrive. Be sure not to damage the bracts of the plants as this will cause a wound which could lead to infections. It is best to acclimatize the product after being in the home and slowly get it used to outdoor conditions using slow steps like placing them under the Patio for a week or so before placing into the garden.
