Poinsettia Slowly Dying
I have a beautiful, huge poinsettia that was doing great but now looks to be dying. It was doing great from Thanksgiving to right after Christmas when I had to remove the table in front of the picture window and consequently had to put the poinsettia further away from the sunlight. It is now shriveling up, dropping leaves, and looks awful. Can I save it?

If you give it the care it needs to thrive, it will regrow its leaves, but this could take some time. And when they do regrow, they will be green, and not colored. You have to wait until next year to get the leaves to change color. You also have to weigh if waiting for the leaves to regrow is worth the effort.
