poinsettia in shock after re-potting

Zone 70810 | lsutiger67 added on July 26, 2017 | Answered

I re-potted my large (about 3 feet tall) poinsettia and it went into shock. Te leaves were turning yellow and dropping by the next day. Each day more leaves drop! It was a beautiful plant, and I fear I am losing it. The last time I re-potted it this did not happen. What can I do to save it? Thanks!

Make sure you did not use too large of a container. It is best to only go up one size to avoid overwatering and root rot.

The soil and container should have good drainage.
