The Plant requires a resting period after it blooms so it is natural for a Poinsettia to drop its leaves leaving Only the red bracts at the top. When the lowest leaves begin to drop withhold water gradually and finally keep dry altogether.

In May shake the soil out of the pot and report it in fresh Rich soil Garden Loam Sand and Leaf Mold. You can add a Small Quantity of dried sheep or cow manure. Cut the stems to within 2 or 3 eyes from the base water and put it outdoors in a sunny place level with the soil surface. New shoots will soon come out from the eyes. Plants must have full Light and Sunshine during the Day and they require a lot of moisture. In the fall when the temperatures drops to 45 or 50 at night bring it indoors to a sunny spot and use tepid water in watering it. The soil should not dry out but it should not be kept soggy.
