Poinsettias - Myth-busting and Care Tips
ARE POINSETTIAS POISONOUS? NO, it's a myth. Years ago, researchers at Ohio State University fed huge quantities of poinsettia parts to rats with no ill effects. To replicate their test, a 50-pound child would have to eat 500 leaves. POISINDEX, a primary resource used by poison control centers, lists occasional vomiting as a side effect of eating the leaves. People with latex allergies can be sensitive to the milky sap and should be careful when handling the plants to avoid a rash. The USDA reports that it has no evidence of anyone dying from eating poinsettias. Holly and mistletoe are much more toxic to children and pets.
Place your poinsettia near a sunny window where it will get bright, indirect light for at least 6 hours a day. Keep it out of direct sun, though, which could fade the leaves. Avoid drafts, keeping temperatures between 65 and 70 degrees. Overwatering is a common cause of death, so water when dry and don't let the plant sit in water.
