The poinsettia, also called Advent Star, Poinsettia or Christmas Star, is a species of the genus Euphorbia (Euphorbia) in the family of Euphorbiaceae (Euphorbiaceae). Poinsettias are (bracts), which are arranged in a star shape, coveted houseplants because of the striking, intensely colored bracts. Often the bracts be mistaken for petals.
The name still occasionally used by gardeners Poinsettia is derived from the former botanical genus name poinsettia. This name Poinsettia in turn according to the American ambassador to Mexico, Joel Roberts Poinsett, named, who introduced the plant in the early 19th century in the United States.
The natural way is achieved with woody trunk and sparse branching, the growth heights up to 4 meters an evergreen shrub. Landscaped cultivated plants, however, are much smaller and much more branched. The branch comes about through deliberate "attack" with phytoplasmas (Color sacs). Young plants have a thickened, succulent root and are generally weak succulent. The short cylindrical branches are initially juicy, but become woody with time. The seated at 2 to 8 cm long stems leaves are dark green with lighter undersides. They are up to 12 × 7 cm in size (also greater in dark state), elongated oval and often slightly serrated.
Main flowering period is from November to January / February, depending on location blooming poinsettias older branching but also almost all year round. They are so-called short-day plants that bloom only when they receive no more than 12 hours of light. This is the case throughout the year at locations far from the equator. In Central Europe the dark phase is artificially extended with dark films at least 12 hours in nurseries as from October, so the plants develop in time for Advent colored bracts. By manipulating the light / dark phases poinsettias could also bring good at other times to blossom.
The actual flowers are yellowish-green to confuse, small and inconspicuous and not with the large bracts (bracts), in whose midst they sit. What, like all milkweed species, including the Christmas star, like a flower looks is an inflorescence cyathium (plural cyathia) is called. Each individual flower is unisexual, either female or male only. The individual flowers are reduced to the absolute minimum. In a cyathium are in the center, only one female flower, consisting only of a pedicled ovary and the stylus. The male flowers
are arranged in a ring around the female flower. These consist of only a single stalked each stamen. Bloom there are none. To recognize the standing at the outer edge of the cyathium nectar glands which, individually or at poinsettia occur in pairs and are lip-shaped.
The bracts are used to attract insects. By breeding a large variance of colors is created. In addition, there are also shades of red salmon-colored, variegated or white (cream white - not pure white). Other colors such as blue, however, are artificial and are created by spraying with plant-tolerated paint, or you can also sprinkled some glitter over it yet.
Dissemination and History:
The poinsettia is found in the tropical deciduous forests of Mexico, Central and South America. There, the distribution area of Mexico extends through the Caribbean Islands, Venezuela and Brazil to Argentina. Introduced as an ornamental in other tropical and subtropical regions, it is often neglected. Thus, larger stocks in Africa (for example, in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda), Asia (for example, in Burma, Malaysia and the Philippines), Australia and the Mediterranean region known.
The poinsettia was named among the Aztecs Cuetlaxochitl, leather flower) in 1804 brought the naturalist Alexander von Humboldt, the plant of his trip to America for the first time to Europe.
In Berlin, he was then cataloged and was later (1833) by the botanist Carl Ludwig Willdenow the botanical name Euphorbia pulcherrima - "the most beautiful of the euphorbias". 1834 Poinsettia by Johann Friedrich Klotzsch (1805-1860), physician, pharmacist and curator was described at the Botanical Museum for a receipt of the "Willdenow" -Herbariums.
1828 was Joel Poinsett, US Ambassador to Mexico, so excited about the plants he saw the spot that he brought her to his home in Greenville, South Carolina. From there he sent them to friends and botanical gardens. A nursery in Pennsylvania was probably the first to sell the plant under its botanical name.
In 1836, the Christmas Star by historian and gardener William Prescott, the name "Poinsettia" awarded to use a descriptive name for marketing can. Since Prescott was writing a book about the conquest of Mexico, while also described Poinsett's work for the spread of the plant, was for him the honor of the "discoverer" of this name near.
At the beginning of the 20th century established the German immigrant family corner in California as the Poinsettia "Christmas flower". First, the star has been offered as a cut flower.
Breeding success (in Germany) by the 1950s it was thanks to that the poinsettia today to deal with than potted plant under the difficult conditions in heated rooms.
Poinsettia as a houseplant:
Especially as a house plant the poinsettia is very popular in Central Europe since about 1950. It comes in a variety of growth forms such as immersion Rieber, More Trieber or as a phylum of Advent in the trade if it has been using flowers that are surrounded by the colored bracts.
Cultivation in the ornamental Construction:
Worldwide is one of the poinsettia to the numerically most commonly grown houseplants. The sale is highly seasonal bound, because they can be as good as sell only in the Advent season.
Very popular this type in the United States. In 1997, the production had a market value of US $ 325 million in the US alone. There is therefore some breeders specialize in the development of ever new varieties. It is grown on growth, leaf color and shape, durability, Brakteenfarbe and shape, short cultivation times and much more.
According Stars for Europe, the Association of European poinsettia breeders, nearly 85 percent of poinsettias around 38 to 40 million sold in Germany are also produced there. The remaining 15 percent comes mainly from the Netherlands, smaller amounts of Denmark and Italy, respectively near the border.
The installation of this heat-loving plant in the fall and early winter is very energy intensive. Normally, nurseries only use tarpaulins (energy shields) to save heating energy at night. The National Research Institute for Horticulture in Weihenstephan (Bavaria) has developed a system in which by a special control of ventilation and heating more than 50 percent energy saving compared with conventional farming methods. It is characterized by a cool morning, which also harden the plants and ensures that the colors of the bracts are still a little stronger. The cold stimulus also promotes the desired compact growth of trade, which is otherwise achieved partly by chemical inhibitors.
There are used different growth habits: miniature plants, immersion Rieber, More Trieber, hanging plants, decorative large plants, pyramids and high strains.
On a bright place, the bracts keep for months. With a lack of light, however, may employ a premature yellowing of older leaves. This reaction can also be found at too high and too low soil moisture. Is poured and sprayed with lukewarm water. After the fall of the winter flowering decide most of the pot to throw away because the plant has unsightly. If you want to further cultivate the flower holds after a rest period of only a very small watering (February to April),. Then the plant is cut back to about 15 cm. From mid-May, the growth resumes and watering increasing continuously, with ball drought and waterlogging are to be avoided. Until the end of September is a weekly full-fertilization of 2 to 3 grams per liter of water the plants enough food. Poinsettias are among the short-day plants that produce flowers less than 12 hours only during short days. The natural short day begins in our latitudes from 15 September. From this point, the formation of flowering begins. The poinsettias can be described as smooth potted plants. Occasionally colonize white, moth-like animals, whiteflies, the plant. This sucking insect should be immediately controlled with insecticides, pest infestation before it is helpful deploy the Encarsia formosa beneficial insect.
The Schulpwespe, which lays its eggs in the white flies so that their larvae which nourish and exterminates so.
Euphorbia pulcherrima needs little water. The substrate should be only slightly damp really. If you drill your finger into the substrate and thereby already feels wet, it is much too wet. The most common error is to care frequent and copious watering. In particular tolerated poinsettias waterlogging. Yellowing of the leaves and at worst plant death would result.
Very well does the dip method in which the root ball while immersed in water until no more air bubbles rise. Then allowed to drain the excess water for several minutes and then provides the plant again only in the planter. Is immersed Next time only when the substrate has become quite dry, depending on environmental conditions sometimes for more than a week. As long as the peat culture substrate used is almost always dark at the surface, it is certainly not wet enough.
A bright and sunny location is ideal. Even partial shade is tolerated, provided that the temperature is not too high.
During flowering it should vary by 15 to 22 ° C. At too high temperatures and too little light vergeilt the vine with yellow leaves.
Euphorbia like most tropical sun!
During the flowering period and whenever the plant grows, once or twice a week with any fertilizer that is recognized in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
Mostly by cuttings. The increase is only recommended advanced plant lovers. In addition, poinsettias are commercially available for little money

at the purchase you should make sure that the actual flowers are not yet fallen in the middle. Only then will you have some time yet fun at the colored bracts.

Well they were Canadians and you know my battle against them :P However, Canada has a HUGE Goth community so hopefully they were. freethoughts Dez is killing it but I need more points...Sproles and Macklin are costing me points.

The past few years feel like a dream. In that waking nightmares are dreams too. While there have been a few days when it seemed the shit storm would finally break, it turns out it never really will completely. That being said I intend to finally force myself back to the stage to play Smells Like Green... even if it's just me a guitar and an ipod. In addition to that I have my side project "My Beloved Mortal Enemy," which is growing stronger. There may be another person even joining me in songwriting for the new material. I don't know.
