Q.Poinsettia cold temperature wilted blooms – what is best?

Zone Southwest Maryland | Anonymous added on February 6, 2019 | Answered

Can the wilted blooms be revived? (I am thinking not.) However, in the back of the vehicle, left it in there too long, and now all the blooms are drooping, and some of the stems are bent hanging down. Since it is a good size, very large, it is so sad, what are my options? Any hope for this situation for making a successful plant now?

This will not survive in your area at all. Your only hope is to regrow it indoors in a south facing window, or under horticultural lighting. It will come back, but it takes some knowledge of the plant to get it to bloom again. They will need long days of about 18 hours of light for a few months, then you will have to drop the hours of daylight to below 12 hours daily. This will induce flowering again.
