Poinsettia

Last spring I wrote about this little guy. Should I keep it or compost it. Well I decided that if it survived the winter I would repost it and keep it for the summer. Once summer is over then I will decide. Along comes September, way too soon, and I had to make the decision. Well it was looking pretty good. Good color and bushy. I put it in the storage area with a grow light to control the amount of light it got and about 6 weeks later I started to see the color. You can see the after pictures what was once a small plant with a couple blooms now has a dozen or more blooms. I know that the color leaves are not blooms but you all know what I mean.
