Show Off Your Poinsettias
You’ll know within an hour if you’ve seared it correctly because the blossom will remain upright. If it starts to droop, the easiest remedy is to cut a fresh one and try again. Place seared stems in tepid water treated with a floral preservative to condition and extend the life of the blooms. The stems are hollow and will absorb water after they’re seared. Once they’re cut, poinsettias get thirsty, so check their water level often, and add more floral preservative each time you change the water.
