Zone Easton PA 18042 | Reetaroni4 added on December 13, 2019 | Answered

I have Poinsettias I want to plant outside in a ceramic pot on my front porch. I live in a Easton PA so it’s gets cold. Will the Poisettas make it outside in the ceramic planter with soil by being watered and given plant food 1 to 2 times a month????

No. They will die right away. Poinsettias are native to Mexico and Guatemala.
Only those who live in USDA hardiness zones 10-12 can plant their poinsettias outdoors. You live in zone 6b, where winter temperatures are often below freezing.
