I Wasn't Going to Try

But, my husband decided to buy these for me. So, I am going to attempt too not kill these this year! Wish me luck:-)

Seriously, I don't believe you. No way could YOU kill a plant. You're SUSIE!!

Good luck! If anyone can keep them alive it's you. You have the magic touch. They're beautiful by the way.

Debbie said...

Good luck to you. I've never had any more success than making it to the New Year before I killed them off.

I will wish you luck!!!


I have three this year and after Christmas I'll store them in a dark closet. I plan on putting an alarm on my phone to water them every two weeks.

Ha wish me luck, too!

Are you saying you have a black thumb (vs. a green thumb) like me? I always say my thumb is so black, I could kill an artificial plant!

The number of live plants in my home? Zippo! I killed them all.

Beautiful flowers by the way. Good luck!

We just got one at work... whih reminds me I'll need to water it... hunh?

Good luck! I'm a guilty Poinsettia murderer as well.

Good luck with the poinsetta! I manage to kill mine off every year.

Thank you for stopping by my blog yesterday and for leaving a comment while you were there :o)

Those are beautiful!! Good luck with them...I have brown thumbs-Andy is the botanist in our household! BTW-he bought an amaryllis-we'll see how it goes!

Honey Mommy said...

Can you believe I've never gotten a poinsettia... maybe this is why!

Muthering Heights said...

You know what? Poinsettias are the only plants I can keep alive! I only water them once a week, and I can get them to last until February. For real!

Jennifer said...

Good luck!

Apparently I'm the "Poinsettia Whiperer" even though I don't want to be. Water once a week only and give it nice indirect sun--it will seemingly keep them alive forever!

Jen B. said...

Those wouldn't last a week in our home.... although I don't have your green thumb, either!
They are beautiful!

Sherry said...

Good luck, Susie! :D

I too have a hard time taking care of poinsettia.

Any plant really.

Cascia said...

That's a beautiful poinsetta! There is no way I could keep a plant in my house my kids would destroy it.

From a blogger friend who swears by this - I heard that if you put one ice cube in there each day without water it works.

And:

Also, DON'T place plants near cold drafts or excessive heat. Avoid placing plants near appliances, fireplaces or ventilating ducts. DO place your plant in indirect sunlight for at least six hours per day. If direct sun can't be avoided, diffuse the light with a shade or sheer curtain.
