Energy Efficient Poinsettia Varieties

A study was underway 5 years ago to understand the range of temperatures for growing poinsettias. In the first study, a comparison was made of how varieties suited to the standard temperature of 20C (68F) grew under 17C (63F) temperature conditions. Generally, both the plant and bracts are smaller at lower temperatures and therefore these points were very carefully considered during the selection process. The above varieties grow consistently well at either low or high temperatures as developed from this program. This program has indicated that breeding for temperature efficiency can lead to varieties that can perform well under a broader temperature range. This gives the grower the choice to set higher or lower temperatures and therefore choose the timing of delivery and improve the quality without interfering with the growth rate of the crop.
