  •   Red Poinsettia, also known by its botanical name Euphorbia pulcherrima, is a festive plant that has earned its place as a symbol of Christmas. With its vibrant red bracts, which are often mistaken for flowers, Poinsettias add a burst of color and holiday spirit to homes, offices, and various festive settings.

    Renowned for its distinctive appearance, Red Poinsettia boasts large, colorful bracts that form a star-like pattern around its small, inconspicuous flowers. The vivid red hue of the bracts radiates warmth and joy, making it an ideal choice for enhancing the festive atmosphere during the holiday season.

    Originating from Mexico, Poinsettias have transcended cultural boundaries to become a cherished emblem of Christmas worldwide. Beyond the classic red variety, Poinsettias are available in other colors.

    Red Poinsettia, a deciduous shrub, typically grows to a height of one to two feet. Its impressive bracts take center stage during the winter months, making it a sought-after choice for holiday decorations, centerpieces, and thoughtful seasonal gifts.


  • Poinsettias thrive in bright, indirect sunlight. Placing them near a sunny window where they can receive sufficient light is ideal. However, it's essential to avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.

    Maintain a moderate temperature range between 65-75°F. Poinsettias are sensitive to drafts, so avoid placing them near doors or windows with cold drafts.


    Keep the soil consistently moist, allowing the top inch to dry out between waterings. Overwatering should be avoided, as Poinsettias are susceptible to root rot.

    Utilize a well-draining potting mix to ensure adequate aeration for the plant's roots.

    While not strictly necessary, pinching back Poinsettias in late spring can encourage a fuller and bushier growth habit.

    This plant is mildly toxic. The milky white sap of the plant may cause mild irritation to the skin or stomach upset if ingested. Keep it out of reach of children and pets.

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
