Hint 1: Keep your Poinsettias vibrant with this simple trick
Did you know that Poinsettias are actually desert plants?
And Poinsettias will die from root rot if overwatered and sitting in excess water in the foil wrap. That's why you should water them using ice cubes...yes, ice cubes!
An ice cube added directly on the soil once or twice a day
ensures your plant will get a slow trickle of water.
With this technique you slowly and evenly water as the ice cube melts.
