Care Instructions Kalanchoes

Kalanchoe blossfeldiana var. is a naturally bushy succulent plant which is native to the highlands of Madagascar. It is grown for its clusters of long-lasting brightly-colored flowers.


Kalanchoes should be grown in a sunny east or west- facing window which receives four or more hours of sunlight per day. They grow well in normal room temperatures. During the summer, your Kalanchoe may be moved outdoors to a semi-shady location. Return them indoors before night temperatures drop below 45ºF.


Water thoroughly and allow the soil surface to dry to a depth of 1” between waterings. Reduce watering in the months of October and November, allowing the soil to approach dryness before watering again.

After Flowering Care:

Kalanchoes are often discarded after the flowers are spent because they are difficult to get to rebloom. To keep them, prune back the plants just below the base of the flower stalks and follow the watering and fertilizing directions above. Kalanchoes naturally bloom when the days are short in late fall or early winter.
