Poinsettias like to be in temperatures between 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit and like bright indirect light.  Keep them away from drafts either warm or cold.  Poinsettias are thirsty plants that like lots of water and can go dry easily.  At the same time, you want to make sure the soil drains, because they will suffer if they are over watered too. Do not get water on the leaves or flowers — it could cause spotting or rot. They are brittle plants — brushing against them could damage the leaves, and bracts break off easily if bumped or not handled gently.  With proper care in a proper environment, the bloom will last up to 6 to 8 weeks.

Here is a bit of trivia on how the poinsettia came to the US and got its name:

Joel Robert Poinsett

Mr. Poinsett

Joel Roberts Poinsett came across the Poinsettia in the 1820s in Mexico while stationed there as US Ambassador.  Intrigued by the plant, he brought cuttings home cultivate on his farm in Greenville, North Carolina.  Because of its short bloom cycle over the holiday months, it became known as the Christmas flower and was named after him.

Also, did you know that Poinsettias are not poisonous?  They are not!

This is a perfect plant and container selection for this space. The natural cement container matches the neutral gray earth tone colors in the room while the rich green leaves of the Rhapis Palm stand out and add color and texture to the space.

One Office at a Time

One Office at a Time

We recently installed a new plant design for a client that moved into a newly renovated building.   The other offices in the building are being completed one at a time.  A new tenant moved in on the same floor and called us to provide them with new plants, that we just installed last week.  We are hoping to be able to provide all the new offices in the building with beautiful new plants so the whole space will come to life. Is your office needing a finishing touch or a refresh?  Call us today for your complimentary design.

More Plants Please

More Plants Please

We recently provided new plants for a client’s Lobby in Pleasanton.  They had so many compliments from tenants and visitors, they immediately asked us to provide more plants throughout the building.  It is amazing how beautiful live plants can transform a space to create such compliments.  If you need a little “Wow” factor to your office space, contact us today to provide a complimentary consultation.
