Reviving a Poinsettia?

MrsH added on October 17, 2014 | Answered

I've had my poinsettia for about 2 years. Over the summer I accidentally left it in the car for a few hours, and it got really hot. Since then it has lost all its leaves and gotten really droopy, and the branches have turned brown. Is it possible to save it?

Several hours in temperatures of 120 or more can pretty much fry any plant, unfortunately. You can cut off the dead branches, water it well, and put it in shady place. If there's any life left in the roots, it will start to sprout new leaves after a few weeks.
