Poinsettia

Post by Izhar » May 20th, 2011, 1:08 pm

Any one growing it? I bought a small plant (the regular red one) in February in lovely blooming stage and shifted it to a larger pot when most of the red "leaves" were shed, now it is growing newer green leaves but at a slower pace. Any kind of input would be appreciable regarding this plant..
