Homegrown Poinsettias

Last year I decided I was going to try to regrow our poinsettias from Christmas. So here's what they look like this year. Now I know that I should probably have isolated them from light little sooner in hopes of getting them to change little more profusely.

Last Christmas I decided I was going to try to keep out poinsettias alive to have the following Christmas. I got the idea from this garden blog I follow: http://www.agardenforthehouse.com/2011/12/the-poinsettia-has-a-future/

I have three in the basement sheltered from all light, so they only get a few hours of light a day on a timer and then are in complete darkness for the rest of the time. One is starting to take color.
