Poinsettias like bright indirect light. Too much sun and warmth will cause the leaves to fall.
Toni thanks for your help I will try it in the morning and have a Happy Holiday.
I have noticed that leaves can drop off when the air is too dry...also if they are a bit too moist.
Give them a little shower with a spray bottle, Ed. I agree with Sjoerd.....
If the green leaves fell first, then the red, sounds like an old plant. Likely started well before sale time. Let it dry a little bit, with just a minimal amount of water. The leaves will continue to fall and you will have a bare stem plant for about a month. Then start watering as you are now and the plant will produce new leaves. Getting the blooms are another problem,, but you will have a nice green plant.
