Q.

Turning my Poinsettia red…..

Zone Cambridgeshire | sueincambs added on October 18, 2015 | Answered

I have read that my Poinsettia needs total darkness for 14 hours a day, and I've been doing that since the start of October but I find the compost is drying out and I have been watering it lightly to keep the compost slightly moist....is that OK or should it be allowed to dry out?
