Question - I have a Poinsettia plant from last year and it's lost it's red color, it is a very healthy (inside pot-plant) but the whole plant is now completely green! Does anyone know how to bring the red color back to the leaves????

Put the plant in a room that isn't lit artificially at night, where the plant is exposed to natural cycles of light. That is what makes the leaves turn red.

Re: DECEMBER 2019 Plant Parade

Jane, welcome to the Plant Parade, and thank you for your entry!
I have removed it for safe keeping as we don't share our works until the 'reveal day', which this month is 20th.

Re: DECEMBER 2019 Plant Parade

As I worked on this lay-out, I was able to use 7 refs. A lot of fun to do. And very hard. I did several sketches beforehand. Orig.size appx. 11x17" ArtRage Oils.

Re: DECEMBER 2019 Plant Parade

Well, the 20th has arrived and some beautiful leaves have been posted already by Christel, Maria de Valle, Shane, Toowomba, Artastic and Skylar. I finally had a chance to do mine yesterday, just in time. Done in acrylic on paper.
