Planting and care
Plant it in a terra cotta pot with drainage holes in the bottom.
Use sandy, well-drained soil such as a cactus potting mix or one part peat moss mixed with two parts loam and sand.
Repot in the spring but only if the plant outgrows its pot.
Use a container that is only slightly larger than the original pot.
Place your plants in a bright location with plenty of direct sunlight.
Kalanchoe plants require a minimum of four hours of sun daily and grow best in temperatures that range between 50 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
Water after the soil dries to a depth of about 2 inches during the spring and summer months with room-temperature water.
Add water to the potting mix and not the plant itself. To prevent rot, do not allow the leaves to get wet.
Feed every three months between March and September using a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted by half.
Bring your plants indoors before the first frost or if the temperature drops below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Reduce watering during the winter months using just enough water to keep the soil moist.
