Latin pronunciation: (you-FOR-bee-uh pul-KER-ri-muh)
Water less and place in cool (no less than 45 degrees), dark place after flowering, when plant looks ragged. In spring, cut plant to height of 8 inches, leaving three nodes (where branches join stem) on each stem. On older plants, trim weak stems, leaving three to seven strong ones. Place outside in bright indirect light after frost danger passes. Keep moist. When growth starts, feed regularly. Pinch branches for bushiness, leaving four leaves on each. Bring in before frost. From October 1 to November 30, place plant in closet or bag from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. This darkness is the key to getting red flowers (bracts) by Christmas. Repeat yearly. Propagate by tip cuttings.
