Today’s Common Gardening Question: How much water do Poinsettias need?

The Answer: Poinsettias require a weekly watering of approximately 1 inch worth of moisture. A rule of thumb is to rehydrate the soil when the top inch or so is completely dry. Keeping the soil slightly damp, but not completely saturated is the best bet.
