Let's start off with a classic! Poinsettias are a traditional holiday icon and bring a lovely pop of color to any indoor living wall. 

  • Durability: Poinsettias are popular holiday plants with moderate durability. They thrive indoors for a few weeks during the holiday season but may require specific care.
  • Water Needs: Water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Allow excess water to drain from the pot to prevent root rot.
  • Light Needs: Place poinsettias in bright, indirect sunlight, ensuring they receive around 6 hours of light daily.
