Kalanchoe Success

By January 27, 2013

Follow me on:

Kalanchoe tend to pop up in plant and grocery stores everywhere, just before the holiday season. They stay in bloom for months and you can still find lots of them for sale in January, sold as flowering houseplants. I think they are really interesting plants, with thick succulent leaves and umbels or clusters of bright flowers. But after the first flowering, the frustrating task of keeping them happy and getting them to rebloom, rather than just growing gangly stems, sets in.

This photo is from our January Theme of Indoor Plants, on the Over the Garden Gate forum. Flower Lady's Kalanchoe seems exuberantly happy, so I thought I'd share some tips, in the links below, on caring for Kalanchoe houseplants and other succulents. Please feel free to share your own.
