Christmas-flowering houseplants to ‘dispel winter dullness’ – including poinsettias

As soon as new growth appears, replace the top few centimeters with fresh compost and resume regular watering.

Poinsettias are widely grown as Christmas houseplants, known for their bright red color. Owners of this houseplant should water sparingly as too much can harm them.

The RHS states: “As a rule of thumb, water only when the surface of the compost starts to feel dry. Place the pot in a bowl of lukewarm water to soak the compost for 10 to 20 minutes.

“Lift it out of the bowl, let it drain, and then return it to your ornamental plant’s pot. This time of plant flowering is exacerbated by humidity, so mist the plants everyday if you can.
