NEW YEAR'S DAY--Fertilize with an all-purpose houseplant fertilizer at recommended rates. Continue to provide adequate light and water for prolonged bloom for several weeks.

VALENTINE'S DAY-- If your plant has become long and leggy, cut back to about five inches tall.

ST. PATRICK'S DAY--Remove faded and dried parts of the plant.  Keep the plant in a very bright interior location.

MEMORIAL DAY--Trim off two to three inches of branches to promote side branching. Repot to a larger container.

FATHER'S DAY--Move the plant outside for the summer; place in indirect light.

FOURTH OF JULY--Trim the plant again. Move it into full sun. Continue to water.

LABOR DAY--Move indoors to a spot that gets at least six hours of direct light daily.

AUTUMNAL EQUINOX--Starting on or near Sept. 21, give the plant 13 hours of uninterrupted darkness (put the plant in a closet, basement, or under a box) and 11 hours of bright light each day.

THANKSGIVING--Discontinue the short day/long night treatment. Put the plant in a sunny area that gets at least six hours of direct light.

CHRISTMAS--Enjoy your "new" poinsettia. Start the cycle all over again.

Make certain the root systems of bushes and shrubs are covered by mulch to protect from the harsh winter.

 

 

The Dirt...

Power...

 

Succulent

 

 

Succulents make great indoor plants because they’re adapted to survive dry conditions. In winter , homes offer dry interior air to houseplants, which is why many don’t survive. Low relative humidity isn’t a houseplant’s friend. Succulents, though, with their water-storing ways, endure dry air.

Tips for Care

 

1. Several hours of direct light is needed.

 

2. Water when the top of the soil feels dry.

 

3. Fertilize with a water soluable fertilizer in the Spring and Summer
