I know there are a few threads with this information on, and one long one where players worked out the way to get the different colours of Poinsettias and Baubles, but I thought it might be useful to gather the information together into one place (and all contained within one post) for easy access!  I'll see if the Mods will move it to the Useful Topics section, so it's always easy to find.


A friend can send you one free; or you can use the self-gifting link:

The seed is also available free from the Misc section of the Seed Shop, so you can plant them in your own choice of pot.


There are three different colours of Poinsettia: red, white and pink.  Which you get depends on the final digit of the pot ID number as follows:

Red    :   0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Pink   :   6, 7
White :   8, 9

You can plant the Poinsettias in your own choice of pot, which means that you can choose the colour of flower you get.  To check the ID number of the pot, hover your mouse over the pot when it's in storage, and then hover over the Use button.  This should bring up the pot ID number towards the bottom of the screen.  On an iPad or similar device, you would need to hold your finger on the Use button, without clicking.

From your own garden, on a PC or laptop, you can see the ID number of an empty pot if you hover your mouse over it and right click the Send to Storage link, then click Inspect Element.  This brings up a new box at the bottom of the page, with one line highlighted - the highlighted line contains the pot ID number.


With the exception of the small red bauble, each colour of the ordinary bauble has the same final digit to the pot number so will always give you the same colour of Poinsettia.

Black or white: pink Poinsettia
Small gold or large red: white Poinsettia
All other colours: red Poinsettia

The same pot re-used will always give you the same colour of Poinsettia.  The small red bauble doesn't automatically give a particular colour because they don't all have the same final digit as the other baubles do, but the colour of Poinsettia you will get from the individual pot will always be the same.


When you accept a Poinsettia gift or use the self-gifting link and your garden has space for the plant, you will always get a red bauble.  To get the other colours you need to make sure that your garden is full, so that when you accept the gift or paste the self-gifting link into your browser, it goes to you Pending area.   You can use free pots to fill your garden if it isn't already full, but make sure that at least one of the items in your garden is one which you don't need to keep.

Once you have the gift waiting in your Pending area, remove one of the items from your garden and click the Pending gift to send it to your garden.  Keep repeating until you get the colour of bauble you want, always making sure that you keep the garden full so the gift goes to the Pending area, because this is the only way to get colours other than red.

It may take a while to get the colour/s you want, as there is no pattern to the order in which the colours arrive.

Duh, this is not getting into my head!!! I have an iPad Pro, so when I highlight the “use”, I get a pot ID, but I don’t understand how to get the color of Poinsettia I want. For instance, I have some pink and white gnarled vases and I want Pink or white flowers........can I do this, or can I only get the color that the last digit on the pot ID gives me?

Helen, the pot number determines what the colour of Poinsettia will be.  If you want a particular colour, you need to use a pot with an ID number which ends with the digit which gives that colour.
