Q.I repotted my poinsettia, I think I killed it

Zone La Pine 97739 | Anonymous added on August 14, 2020 | Answered

HI, I am hoping you can help me. I have been re-blooming poinsettias now since 2017. This past spring, I pruned my poinsettias and for the first time, took the cuttings and planted them. Oh I was so happy to see them spout up and they have grown since then. One cutting in particular took root really well and grew the quickest and prettiest. She looked like she needed a bigger pot so I repotted her. I have repotted plants now for many years and never had any problems. I re-potted 3 poinsettias, 2 were the adults that the cuttings came from and the 1 was the biggest cutting that had grown. The adults are fine but my cutting is all dropping and so sad looking. I am heart broken. I am afraid I have killed it. Can you help me? What can I do to bring her back to health?

If this is a recent transplanting, your cutting may just be suffering from shock or perhaps it has picked up a fungus in the process. Hoping the info in this article will help:
