CareGeneral Maintenance: Repot your Kalanchoe every year into a pot that is 1 size larger. Propagate through either stem cuttings that have been allowed to callous over for at least 24 hours, or through division of offshoots
Temperature: These plants love hot temperatures, and will thrive in the household climates. They can tolerate temperatures as low as 15 degrees Celsius, and as high as 34 degrees Celsius. Do not expose to frost or freezing conditions
Light: These plants require a lot of light to grow properly. A minimum of 6 hours of full sun in a day will have them happy, or as much bright direct sunlight as possible. They can tolerate direct sunlight for long periods of time, though take care to watch for burning of the leaves. If this occurs, take out of direct sunlight into indirect sunlight
Watering: Succulents of any variety have thick, water-retaining leaves so they rarely need watering. These plants have roots that are very sensitive to rotting, so it is best to allow at minimum the top 2 inches of soil to dry between watering. Ideally 50% of the soil should be dry before watering any succulents
Soil: These plants enjoy most potting soil mixes so long as they have excellent drainage. Mixing in Perlite/Vermiculite or other gritty, drainage improving inorganic materials is a great way to improve your soil quality
Fertilizer: Kalanchoe rarely need fertilization, but will benefit from feedings once every 3-4 weeks during the growing season (April to August)
