I kept my poinsettia outside
I kept my poinsettia outside all summer , pruned it once around July 4th to make it more compact , when the nites promised frost I moved it in on a south facing porch back out during the warm fall days . One day I noticed some of the leaves starting to color and by Xmas it was beautiful ! I did not do the covering with a box or the closet treatment . Nature did it for me ! looking forward to the next year with the same treatment :-)
