They are usually in full bloom at the time of their arrival and often are transferred from congenial greenhouse surroundings to the harsher conditions of the home at seasons not especially suited to such moves. They there- for need special care. Because their pots are likely to be full of roots, give particular attention to their moisture requirements. Don't let the soil dry out but avoid constant saturation. Watering by the immersion method is nearly always more satisfactory than top-watering. Do it at least once a week even if you water at the top In between. Try to accommodate the new arrivals favorable. Avoid drafty places. Certain kinds such as cinerarias, cyclamen, and Christmas peppers need cool locations. A sun porch where the temperature does not go below forty degrees at night nor above sixty-five in the daytime suits them well. If you cannot provide this, select positions close to east or west windows and away from radiators where temperatures will not be too high. Naturally you want to keep flowering plants blooming as long as possible and in some cases, to retain them for future years. Some gifts, such as the Christmas poinsettia, last best in a warm room. Water freely. Primulas remain attractive many weeks in cool rooms. Good light is important, and don't forget to pick the faded flowers. Cinerarias need cool conditions and need plenty of water. Discard after blooms stop. Cyclamen need same conditions, good light; comes in red, pink and white. Dishgardens, often containing an assortment of plants that need different growing conditions, are popular. These are arranged by the florist to produce eye appeal usually without much regard for the real needs of the plants. The recipient of one of these is going to look forward to great pleasures, providing care in watering is taken, because of poor drainage. Here is wishing everyone of my readers; the healthiest, happiest and most blessed HOLIDAY SEASON and may you get a "green thumb" from Santa.
