Caring For Kalanchoes

This flowering houseplant, is called Kalanchoe. It’s sold in grocery stores, nurseries, and big box stores.

They like bright, natural light. Be sure to keep them out of any hot windows because they’ll burn.

These plants are succulents with fleshy leaves and stems and you don’t want to keep them constantly wet. 

As with any flowering plant, the hotter your home, the faster the flowers will open up.

If you have a balanced fertilizer, you can apply that in spring or summer if you think your plant needs it.

You don’t want to fertilize houseplants in late fall or winter because that’s their time for rest.

Succulent & cactus soil works well with a bit compost mixed in.

You can propagate Kalanchoes by seed, division, or stem cuttings.
