Poinsettias like to be slightly on the dry side, so don't overwater them. Don't use fertilizers when the plant is flowering. After your poinsettias have finished flowering, use a well-balanced fertilizer once a week.
And once again: if you want to make your poinsettia flower for Christmas, the plant should be kept in darkness for 12 hours every night during October, November and early December.
