How to Care for Poinsettias

poinsettia_flower_bright_red_close-up_40936_2200x1530
Poinsettia is the brilliant Christmas plant that, with a little love, will bloom long after the ho-ho-hos have faded. Here’s how to care for poinsettias and help them last for up to eight weeks.

Buy with care

Inspect poinsettias carefully before you buy a plant. A healthy plant looks like this:
Dark green foliage before color develops.
Bracts (colored leaves) completely colored without green perimeters.
Lush and filled with leaves, not yellow and sparsely covered.
Balanced from all sides.
Displayed naked without plastic sleeves that can cause plants to droop. Cover the plant only when transporting in temperatures below 50 degrees.
2.5 times taller than its diameter.

Home growing

Poinsettias originated in Mexico and don’t like the cold, even for a few minutes. So make sure you wrap the plant before driving it home, and then keep it away from hot and cold drafts, such as heating registers and drafty windows, which can make leaves drop.

More poinsettia care tips
Display your poinsettia in indirect light for about 6 hours per day.
High temperatures will shorten the poinsettia’s life. Keep room temperatures at 60 to 70 degrees during the day; around 55 degrees in the evening. You might have to move the plant around to expose it to optimal temperatures, like keeping it in the kitchen by day and in the mudroom by night.
Water when the soil is dry to the touch. If you keep the plant in foil, puncture the bottom to allow water to drain and prevent root rot. Empty drip trays after watering. Be careful not to over-water, which can cause wilting and leaf loss.
Feed blooming poinsettias every 2 to 3 weeks with a water-soluble plant food; water monthly after blooming.

Should you rebloom?

Coaxing a poinsettia to re-bloom each year is an exhausting process. Each month from January to December you have to snip or repot; move to the dark or move to the light; water or not water — you’ll get a migraine just thinking about it.

Since a new 6-inch poinsettia costs a ten-spot, you’re better off buying a new crop each year and spending your time and energy on other gardening delights.

But if you’re a waste-not person, here’s a look at what you can do to coax your poinsettia to bloom again next year.

January-May: Give your plant plenty of sun and enough water to stay moist, but not soggy. Fertilize every 2 weeks. In early April, prune to 6-8 inches tall.

June: Repot with fresh soil and move your poinsettia outdoors where it can get 6-8 hours of direct sunlight. Fertilize weekly until early fall. If you put the plant on a patio, give it shade during the hottest part of the day. If you place the pot in a flower garden, lift and turn it weekly so roots don’t grow into the ground and become shocked when you return the plant indoors in September.

Late July: Pinch off the top of the plant and 2-3 leaves on each stem to prevent the poinsettia from getting leggy.

September: Bring the poinsettia indoors when nighttime temperatures fall into the 50s. Place in a sunny window, and water when dry to the touch. Fertilize weekly.

October 1 to Thanksgiving: To force the bracts to color, the plant must be kept in uninterrupted darkness from 5 p.m. to about 8 a.m., and then returned to bright sun for the rest of the day. There should be a 7-10-degree difference between the dark and light environments: optimally, 65-70 degrees at night, and 70-80 degrees in the day. Fertilize weekly.

Thanksgiving: When the bracts begin to color, suspend the dark-light routine, and keep the plant moist and in a sunny spot for 6-8 hours daily. After full color has been achieved (congratulations!), stop fertilizing and move the poinsettia to wherever it will be admired most.

Cyber Monday Safety Tips!!

Avoid-The-Cyber-Monday-Trap-Tips-For-Safe-Online-Shopping-Infographic

Cyber Monday: Five Tips for Safe Online Holiday Shopping
Nov. 26, 2012
By JOANNA STERN

Before you fork over your credit card number and other info, make sure you’re following these five safety tips.

1. Make sure you are buying from a secure site.
“The first thing you want to do is look at the URL and make sure it says HTTPS,” says Natalie Severino, a security expert at Trend Micro. Along with the HTTPS in the web address you want to make sure you see the small padlock icon in the address bar when you get to the payment steps. Both of those will indicate that you are shopping on a secure site, which has a trusted and safe backend system.

2. Make sure your security software is up to date.
It seems like the obvious and boring tip, but it really is important. Every security expert we spoke with stressed that keeping the anti-virus software up to date and running should stop you from going to an unsafe shopping site.

3. Don’t trust all those emails.
If you’re like any of us, your inbox is flooded with more “great Cyber Monday deal” messages than you can stand. But not all those emails are safe. “Some of the emails and the deals seem too good to be true. And they are,” says Claudia Lombana, PayPal’s Shopping Specialist. “The best thing to do is not to click the link, and go to a new webpage and try and go to it that way. It is only clicking links from those direct e-mail sources that can get you in trouble.”

4. Use a different password at every site.
If you can learn anything from this year’s online security disasters it is never use the same password across your accounts or sites. If you are prompted to sign up for a new account to make a purchase make sure to create a new password. Both Lombana and Severino suggested a password with a combination of upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters. Christina stressed to stay away from your name and family names; social media has made those passwords easier to crack.

5. Be even more mindful when shopping on your phone or tablet.
According to PayPal, there was a 193 percent increase in mobile shopping on Black Friday 2012 over last year. And that’s just the start — the number of people shopping on their phone or tablet this holiday season is only going to go up. The experts say, however, that those mobile shoppers need to be even more vigilant about security. “The number one thing when shopping on a mobile device is to password-protect the phone or tablet,” Lombana said. Also, make sure to keep in mind all the other tips and always make purchases over a secure and password-protected WiFi network.
