Poinsettias only get about 2 feet tall and wide when grown as an indoor plant and don't need much babying when you first get one. Here are some things to keep in mind when buying your Points. They are tropical plants therefore they need to be protected from extreme cold weather. Protect the plant any night we drop below 35 degrees.
