Description

Kalanchoe plants are thick leaved succulents that are often seen in florist shops or garden centers. Most end up as potted plants but areas that can mimic their native land of Madagascar can grow them outdoors. The clusters of tiny flowers produce a large bloom held aloft on stems above the majority of the foliage. If you wish for a second bloom, it is incumbent to know how to take care of a kalanchoe. During October and early March, the day lengths are short enough to naturally force flower buds. In other periods, you will have to put the plant in a closet or dim room for most of the day. Bring it out only for morning light and then put it away after a few hours. The plant needs six weeks of 12 to 14-hour darkness to form spectacular new flowers.

Sunlight – Kalanchoe plants need a lot of sunlight to bloom, so they should be kept in a room with an abundance of bright, natural light.

WateringThe hearty plant does well with minimal water, requiring a complete saturation only every few weeks or so.

Plant Care – If you’re struggling to help your plant achieve its flowering potential, look for a fertilizer blend that includes potassium, which can help it produce added buds next time it blooms.

Caution – Kalanchoe is considered very toxic to animals, including cats, dogs, and livestock. The leaves and flowers of the plant contain a chemical compound called bufadienolide.
