Pointsettia needs to turn red

I've managed to keep a Poinsettia alive since last Christmas in fact it's flourishing

Does anyone know how to make its leaves turn red again

Thanks, it's the first one I've ever managed to keep for such a long time - but I'm sure I've read somewhere that they have to be treated to make the leaves grow red

Well done on keeping it alive - never yet managed it myself.  Leaves should go red sometime just before Christmas (it comes from the Southern Hemisphere).
