Let's talk poinsettias

A couple weeks ago, we received our first shipment of poinsettias.  The poinsettias come in as unrooted cuttings and we grow them on from there.   Here is a picture of the poinsettias under mist.  The picture is fogging due to the fact that outdoor temps and humidity is around 95 degrees plus and 95 plus humidity.  The roots are starting to develop, so later this week we will begin transplanting.

Also, we started growing a few Gloxinias.  These bell shaped-velvety flowers are spectacular.
