My poinsettia is three years old and it "bloomed" in February. Now I'm ready to put it in the closet, but I don't know if I'm supposed to water it or not.

It needs just a whisper of water while in the dark, maybe a 2-4 Tblspn per month. Exact amounts vary with size of container, temperature and humidity. If the stems look like they are drying out, more water is needed.
