We have a
poinsettia at our house that we bought in Christmas. At least over here (the Caribbean), these poinsettias are very delicate; they usually die after a few months.
So our poinsettia has been surviving, but I've noticed that many leaves are dry and dying. I started looking at the leaves and this what they look like:
Most of the plant is covered with this.
My question is: is there anything that can be made homemade that will treat the plant and not just individual leaves? I can spray each leaf with mild soapy water, but it's just too many leaves. Also, I don't know if that will really help the plant.
My biggest concern is that this plant is very fragile and delicate, so I'm worried that the plant may die if I use something too strong.
Any help is appreciated.
I also wanted to point out that the plant's in a balcony, and it gets tons of sun (which hasn't affected it so far). I was thinking of moving it somewhere else, but I worry that the change and the bugs will end up killing the plant.
