If you're looking to grow a succulent with a little extra beauty, look no further than the Kalanchoe plant. Like most succulents, Kalanchoe is a relatively hands-off varietal, preferring plenty of sunlight and well-draining soil. If you have a habit of forgetting to water your plants every once in a while, a Kalanchoe may be the perfect pick for you.
PLANT CARE :
- Kalanchoe plants need a lot of sunlight to bloom, so they should be kept in a room with an abundance of bright, natural light. Avoid placing them on windowsills or in direct sunlight, however, as it can scorch the leaves and cause the plant not to bloom.
- Let the soil of your Kalanchoe dry out completely in between waterings, then water to the point of saturation. If you're not sure if the soil is adequately dry, simply stick your finger into the first few cm—if you feel any moisture at all, check back again in a few days. Because the Kalanchoe is a succulent, its leaves are actually capable of storing water, so even if you time your watering a few days late, the plant will be just fine. Using a Sustee Moisture Meter stick helps to figure out how much moisture is in the soil so you don’t under or overwater.
- Environment is important to the Kalanchoe, though it's not as picky other indoor houseplants. Generally, your plant will thrive at temperatures ranging from 10–27 °C—meaning, with the exception of not letting the plant freeze, you don't have to do much to create the proper indoor environment.
- Toxic to pets.
