poinsettia

For more Ruby Tuesday posts click here!!

The poinsettia we bought last year is starting to show red leaves!! I am very happy this brave little plant survived in a pot despite my not-so-green thumb. It was indoors during the winter in a sunny place, and it was taken outside late this summer as it showed it didn't like the old place anymore.

  3. Very nice! I kept a Poinsettia for several years. Mostly it was sickly and I was striving to keep it alive. The leaves never turned for me.

  5. Now THAT is exciting! If I could get one of those babies to live for a 2nd season I would be ready to turn cartwheels!!! Looks like it's going to turn into a beauty too!

  6. DH is trying to figure out how to get the one he bought me last year to have red again. I'll have to look it up online cuz he won't.

    Yours is beautiful!

  7. We have tried and hoped for red leaves from the poinsettia from last Christmas, but they don't often happen. Just the tantalizing bud. But we will do so again after this Christmas. New plants, new hope. At least the red leaves continue into January...

  9. So very pretty, Mar....It will be fun to see how it develops, won't it? I hope you will continue to document it for us! You know The Pointsettia is in the Euphorbia Family. Anything with that Milky White Sticky Substance is part of The Euphorbia Family...!

    I never seem to be able to keep them alive, let alone bring them back in bloom the next year!

  18. You succeeded! I love this plant, it's so Christmas! I didn't know that it was possible to keep it more than the Christmas season. I didn't manage ....until, this year, maybe. Here, we say 'La main verte'= The green hand. That's a perfect Ruby present! Thanks to share.
