Thumbs up Poinsettias - how to get them to rebloom

Has anyone ever successfully saved poinsettias till the following year AND gotten them to bloom?

I found how-to instructions; unfortunately when I copied/reduced/lightened/scanned the article, it ended up upside down

There's a thread about poinsettias somewhere on this forum - just use the search feature.

This was a small poinsettia from last year, planted in the garden after the holiday. It was so small, it barely peeked over the retaining wall visible at the bottom of the picture. I did nothing but cut it back when the blooms withered, because I wanted to see if it would bloom with nature in charge. It's turning red and has buds, but won't make it by Christmas. It may have been slowed down by the neighbor frequently leaving his side yard light on all night. Luckily the heavy rains haven't hurt it.

I save the one we get for Christmas and keep it around by a window all winter. You know they look pretty good and red for months. Then when the last frost is over, usually around late April, I'll stick it in a spot in the garden. It will stay in the garden providing leafy green color up until the frost gets it around November. It never reblooms red and I'm not going to dig it out of cover it to get it to change but it gets an extended lease on life anyway.
