Here are a few tips for some of the more popular pot- ted plants: POINSETTIAS -- When the flowers have faded, the stems should be cut back six to eight inches above the pots: discontinue watering, and store the plants in a wrm, dry basement until May. In spring the plants are re- potted, removing some of the old soil and replacing it with fresh garden soil. The pots are then plunged in the garden in a warm and protected location. As new shoots get to be three or four inches long, the tips are pinched out. This pinching is done until mid-August. When evening- temp- erktures start dropping below 60 degrees, the plants should be moved indoors, and continue to grow the plants in a sunny loca- tion such as in a south or a west window. It is interesting to note that the conspicuous or showy part of the poinsettia is not really a flow- er. but actually modified leaves called bracts. The flowers are the inconspicuous green or yellow structures at the center of the bracts. AZALEAS  These plants re- quire an acid soil and are usually grown in a mixture of peat and sand, or peat and soil After the flowers fade, the plants should be placed in a bright location where the' temperature wilF be 68 to 72 degrees, Apply a li, about every two weeks. watering is required. Peat has a high water holding capacity, but the azaleas won't stand too wet or too dry conditions. In May, re- pot the plants in fresh soil and plunge the pots in the garden in a shaded spot. Pinch off the rap- idly growing vegetative side shoots by late June or July. Leave the plants outdoors as late as you can, but when they are brought indoors place them in a sunny window, The plants will bloom again, but will be later than Christmas--probably in Feb- ruary. CYCLAMEN -- Most of our homes are too warm for growing cyclamen, They require a night temperature of 50 to 55 degrees, and a daytime temperature of 60 to 65 degrees. They like a bright light, but not direct sunlight, and a constant supply of moisture around the root system. to the National Museum of Sci- After the plants have flowered ence and Industry.
