Can you hear the festive chimes ringing? It might be a hint that you're in the mood for a vibrant crimson tropical shrub indigenous to Mexico. Enter the Pink Poinsettia, a charming house plant commonly employed to adorn Christmas spaces. However, beyond its decorative purpose, this evergreen gem doesn't deserve to be discarded post-holiday merriment; with attentive care, it can become a perennial source of vibrant joy year after year.

Best Locations For Growing White Poinsettia

Flourishing in spaces with a minimum of six hours of bright, indirect light, humidity levels between 50% to 75%, and temperatures ranging from 65° to 75°, this tropical shrub is best placed away from heat sources, such as fireplaces, owing to its preference for moderate to high humidity.

This unique tropical shrub, celebrated for its legendary crimson bracts often mistaken for flowers, reacts directly to light intensity. The more abundant the bright light it receives, the more vibrant the color of its bracts.

White Poinsettia Sunlight Requirements

This unique tropical shrub, celebrated for its legendary crimson bracts often mistaken for flowers, reacts directly to light intensity. The more abundant the bright light it receives, the more vibrant the color of its bracts.

White Poinsettia Care

During fall, manipulating the exposure to light and darkness alternately facilitates the reproduction of crimson bracts. Trimming dead leaves encourages growth and prevents diseases. While pruning is not frequently necessary, occasional pinching during the growing season stimulates a larger plant.

Pink Poinsettia prefers loamy, acidic, and well-draining soil. An initial 8-inch or 9-inch pot filled with a mix amended with peat moss and perlite is ideal. During repotting in early spring, trim it back to four inches and transfer it to a pot two to four inches larger, checking and changing the soil to prevent root rot.

Watering White Poinsettia

Guard against root rot by avoiding overwatering. Check moisture levels by inserting a finger one to two inches into the soil; if dry, water, and if not, wait a day or two before rechecking.

Feeding White Poinsettia

Reserve feeding for the blooming season, providing monthly diluted, balanced, water-soluble fertilizer. This routine ensures the sustained vitality of your flamboyant friend.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
