Friday update> 11/11/11

Here are the latest pictures:  I am beginning to believe that some of the poinsettias were over plant growth regulated as I see some signs of leaf distortion.  The growth regulator was likely applied on the poinsettia cutting prior to us receiving the un-rooted cutting. This distortion is apparent on a few leaves on the 8 and 9 inch pots.  The small pots look very good.

Poinsettias are coloring up

The poinsettias are coloring up nicely.  The larger red poinsettias, 8.25 and 8.75 inch poinsettias experienced so slow growth during the summer months, but they are starting to show some good height.  The large novelties are excellent!  The smaller 6 and 7 inch red poinsettias are also nice.
