Flowers for the Christmas Table

Flowers for the Christmas TableCloudy, foggy, gray on gray – this is currently our environment. A treat for mind and soul during this time creates a bouquet of flowers in your own four walls. Therefore it should not be missing at the Christmas banquet table as a colorful focal point. One kind of flowers leads sales charts: Poinsettia.

Its name comes from a Mexican Christmas tale, in which a poor Mexican girl could give that baby Jesus in a church nativity scene just a bunch of weeds. Exactly at Christmas in the middle of the pale weed flowered a poinsetta. And indeed, the poinsettia blooms are still in time at the Christmas season.

Put it in a bright place, but not directly at the sun. He constantly needs water, but you should not exaggerate. To provide the necessary humidity spray the green leaves with water (but not on the petals).

After the holidays place it at a good position, it is a perennial and bloom again next year when during the fall you cover its upper leaves sometimes with a thin cloth.
