Household Hint: Poinsettia pointers. Although poinsettias usually last only one season, you can keep them going longer with some special loving care. To bloom at Christmas they need total darkness for 10 hours a day for the entire fall. Trim the stems back after the flowers die in winter, and give them only a little water for several months. Once you start back to regular watering, the plant will begin to grow again.
