Poinsettia plants

Zone Reading, PA 19606 | duchessandpeter added on April 2, 2016 | Answered

I have had poinsettia for years. By this time they would have fallen off leaves and all, and thrown in the trash. I have had this plant since December 2015. Have it next to a window, which gets sunlight from 3pm to about 6pm EST. Live in Pennsylvania area. My question is I give it water from a bottle, when it needs it. I have not lost one single bloom, or one single leaf on it. It is in the same pot that it was in when I got it. Everything that I have read on it tells me the blooms should have fallen off, and even the leaves. It is April now and they are still there. What is going on? I do change the plant around so that one side is not facing the light about every week.
