    You may remember this group of six poinsettia’s on our salon table...well, that was nothing. Have a look at where they come from:

    Its a poinsettia paradise— not the kind that the plants go to, rather where they come from.

    Yeah Mart— bags of ‘em.
    I know it is. We have lots of large commercial greenhouses around us here, and they are very interesting to visit.

    Had a tour of a poinsettia growing house once. It was amazing the extent the of the lighting conditions poinsettia need in order to get the beautiful display. It really explained why we rarely get those colored brackets again. Amazing growers.
