what has to be done to make a pointsettia plant bloom again



Keep it in a closet or box for 14 hours of complete, unbroken darkness every night for 8-10 weeks. Even a flash of artificial light during this process could delay bloom.

Must be very little artificial light getting to it, then, Charlie. Lucky! Usually, when I haven't done the darkness treatment, they didn't come into full bloom until St. Patrick's day, if at all. : )
