In the run-up to Christmas we are all trying to make our houses and apartments as comfortable as possible and to decorate beautifully for the festival. But if you have a small apartment and you do not have enough space for a Christmas tree, then you should not hang your head, because even in a small space can create a wonderful decoration. Because we have a real beauty here in Europe since 1950, which shows us their beautiful red leaves and flowers during the Christmas season. The poinsettia is undoubtedly one of the most popular plants in this cold season. It captivates everyone with its natural beauty and adorns every ambience. It is also ideal as a Christmas present or as a souvenir if you want to please a loved one.
The poinsettia brightens with its red leaves the gloomy winter season.
Pure beauty: the red and green leaves of the poinsettia are crowned by tender blossoms.
Poinsettias (Euphorbia pulcherrima) enchant us in every garden center in the run-up to Christmas. These are actually the best selling houseplants just before Christmas. And there are good reasons for this: the Christ Star, as the exotic beauty is still called, is enjoying ever greater popularity. Their star-shaped bracts are red, pink or cream-colored, framed by equally beautiful green leaves. Thanks to its natural beauty, the poinsettia turns into the absolute eye-catcher in every room where it is placed.
The most beautiful among the beautiful winter plants!
But where is the best location for a Christstern?
The poinsettia is very sensitive to the cold, it does not like draft and low temperatures. You must be attentive when choosing to purchase a well-groomed plant. Rolled leaves and yellow spots indicate poor care, so you'd better choose a different poinsettia. The red-green beauty of your choice must be brought home well packaged, because the Christstern must not be exposed to the cold. At home you are looking for a warm location for your red eye-catcher, where he gets no direct sun and feels no draft! Yes, these beauties are demanding, but ... You just have to accept that. Never let the potting soil get too dry and always pour the poinsettia with lukewarm water.
If there is no direct sunlight, you can also place the Christstern on the windowsill. He looks good inside and out.
Here's an important clue, especially if you have pets: the poinsettia is poisonous! It belongs to the family of the milkweed family and in the milky juice will contain irritant components. Pets like small dogs, cats, rabbits or hamsters are not allowed to nibble on the beautiful leaves of the poinsettia, because this can eventually lead to poisoning, which is extremely undesirable. Every housewife must also wear gloves when pruning or repotting the Christmas Star. Additional safety never hurts!
The poinsettia is an integral part of the festive decoration.
So place your poinsettia in a safe location, surround it with more decorations for Christmas and you'll get a real eye-catcher in your home that will delight your eyes for a long time.
We wish you a merry christmas!
Red beauty that captivates.
Invite the Christmas spirit into the house!
