Poinsettia clipart is very easy to use as an ornament for Christmas.

Introducing Atelier Kaori’s Christmas Clipart

Poinsettia Clipart

Poinsettia is very necessary plant in Christmas holidays. When I was a child there is only red one. But now you can see pink, white, green-yellow, gradation, spotted. Every color is attractive.

I painted classic red, and sweet pink one.

I like both. Red is liked from everyone, matches every place in Christmas. Pink is for mostly younger person who is bored about red and green Christmas ornament.

About Poinsettia

Poinsettia is native to Mexico. Mexican name is Flor de la Nochebuena, it means Christmas Eve flower. They give means its red leaves to Jesus’s blood.

Then, what means Poinsettia? Poinsettia is named after the first United States Minister to Mexico, Joel Roberts Poinsett. He was a botanist and brought it to USA.

How to Grow

Weak for Cold

My mom bought a poinsettia every winter, and after several weeks, all they die. I was sad every time I see poinsettia is dying.

But poinsettia came from warm area so that’s difficult to grow in cold winter in Japan. So If you live in colder area, keep it inside from October to March.

 

Darkness Treatment

Poinsettia’s leaves won’t turn to red, just feeding water.

Since October, you need to put poinsettia completely darkness from 5 p.m. – 8 a.m. And you need to do it everyday for 8 – 12 weeks before holiday season. Then you will see the buds on it.

So, that’s very difficult to do for Japanese small houses. And, I have never succeed!

In Mexico or the area around equatorial, they turn to red automatically? I wonder.

 

If you cannot keep a poinsettia well, you can have clipart instead of it!
