I bought a very pretty blue Poinsettia plant yesterday as a gift for my boss. I've never seen a blue one before anyhow it was 19 degrees here last night and I walked home with it and the brought into the office this morning. Fortunately my boss isn't here because the plant looks horrible, all the leaves shriveled up and so did the blossom.

I watered it and placed it right under a lamp. Anything else I can do for it?

The blue and purple we see this year are dyed that color. Keep away from drafts, keep the soil moist and give it as much light as you can.
