Easter Flower Care

When Christmas arrives, shops and homes are filled with Easter flowers, or poinsettias, brightening the spaces with their red and green Christmas colors. This plant has become one of the most representative icons of our parties and it is rare the home that does not have one for those dates. Its success is due to its bracts or red leaves in the form of a star, which after the months become green and then redden again (there is also cream, white or pink). However, although we buy them precious, over time, as they pass the holidays, they begin to lose their flowers, wither and after a month or two they die. And is that the Christmas flower is a very strong plant, but if we do not take into account the basic care you need, we will not be able to keep it always beautiful and flowery.

Choose a suitable plant

When you go to buy an Easter flower, make sure that the specimen has a thick base and that there are healthy green leaves under the colored leaves that form the star. If you see that there are yellow leaves or damage to the leaves and/or shoots means that the plant is not well cared for.
Be wary of plants whose soil is soaked or very dry, as it may be a sign that they are not regularly watering and this may have irreversibly damaged the roots.
Do not buy plants that are found outdoors. The reason they are sold wrapped is that this plant suffers a lot of the blows produced by the low temperatures and in a few days it can lose its leaves almost completely. Make sure it is well guarded on your way home.

Care of the Easter flower at home

When you get home you must remove the wrapper from the plant to aerate it.
Place it near a window where it receives good light and prevents it is very close to sources of heat such as radiators or air conditioners, as they dry the environment a lot and can damage the plant.
Irrigation should be done directly in the pot, never wet the bracts and leaves, and moderately, as much water can rot the plant.
When winter passes you can prune it and even plant it in a garden. When spring arrives it will begin to sprout and grow and will bloom again for Christmas.

Care of the Easter flower in the garden

If you're going to decorate your garden with poinsettias, keep in mind how sensitive they are to low temperatures. Look for the warmest areas for your location and those that may be protected by a wall both artificial and natural.

Is there a household substitute for blossom set?

You can artificially pollinate the flowers by taking a q-tip and gently rubbing the inside of the flower to gather pollen. Then take the q-tip and insert it into other flowers. Hope this helps but it seems you either need some bees or q-tips to help this. Q-tips are safer.

My cherry tomato plants are 8" high and 5 weeks old. I just noticed that the very bottoms of the main stems are a little smaller (in diameter) than the rest of the stem and are slightly brown! Could it be...


Sounds like it could be Nitrogen defficiency ..
"Nitrogen deficiency:Very slow growth of plants, followed by progressive pale green color moving from tip and young leaves back to more mature leaves. Leaves are small, thin, perhaps with purple veins. Stems eventually brown and dry off. Flower buds yellow and drop. Apply N immediately"All you ever wanted to know about tomatoes but were too afraid to ask:


If this helps please leave feedback, if not let me know and I'll try and help some more
