Also asked, how often should you water a poinsettia?
The holidays’ most famous flowers yield one very important question: How often should you water your poinsettias? Answer: You should water your poinsettias whenever the soil feels dry to the touch, about once per week.
Subsequently, question is, what do yellow leaves on a poinsettia mean? You should always keep the soil in your poinsettia’s pot moist.
