I am working with a non-profit organization near Atlanta, GA. We are obtaining the use of an unused greenhouse at a local high school. We would like to grow poinsettias for the Christmas season to sell at the local churches. All profits will go back in the organization to provide jobs and training for down on their luck citizens. I need to know more about growing the poinsettias in our area, if it’s viable and if there is time to grow them for this Christmas.
I broke a branch off of my poinsettia and put it in water in an attempt to start a whole new plant. The branch seems to be growing in the water but it won’t grow roots. Is there a way for this branch to become a whole new plant?
I was repotting my poinsettia because it was getting too big for the old pot. A branch accidentally broke off. Is there a way I can save the branch that broke off?
Can I store my poinsettias in the basement so that they can turn red? I don’t have a closet to place them in. I heard that they need 12 hours of darkness, well, I live in Cleveland, Ohio and now it’s dark from 7 pm till 8 am and then there’s still not a lot of bright light. Right now I have them sitting in my living room, which really does not receive a lot of light. They have grown very well. What can I do?
I have poinsettias planted outside (Zephyrhills, Fl). At what temp should I cover them when it gets cold at night and with what do I use?
I have a printout on how to regrow poinsettias and turn them red. I thought I was doing everything right. As of the middle of September, I have been putting them under a large box and taking them out in the morning. . . about 14-15 hours. Only thing is, I’ve been looking online to see when they should be turning red and am now reading that I should have been putting them under the box early in the day. I’ve been putting them under about 7 pm each night and taking them out about 9:30-10 a. m. each morning. I’ve got it backwards. About mid-October I noticed 2 little tiny leaves with just a touch of red on them and thought “Oh no! It’s too early!” Still keeping them under the box. Is there anything I can do at this point to still have them turn red in time for Christmas or did my mistake of putting them under too late in the evening ruin that? Thanks for any help you can give me!! Mary Hogan
