Plant Care Instructions*


Kalanchoe (collin-CO-wee), an evergreen plant native to tropical Madagascar, is a common houseplant grown for its attractive, numerous clusters of long-lasting colorful flowers. Flowers comes in shades of yellow, orange, or red.

Plant Care*:

Temperatures averaging 70°F/21°C - 80°F/26°C are very good and not much below 50°F/10°C.

Succulents thrive on bright light conditions, but not direct sunlight. Heat is fine because they react similar to a cactus in hot conditions. Bright rather than direct light, is the key.

Succulents are mainly made up of water and retain a lot of water in their foliage (for storage), similar to a cactus. The soil needs to be moist which is easy to check by placing a finger an inch deep into the soil to make sure it is not dry. It needs much less in the winter.

A pot mixture used for cactus will suffice or a soil mix that drains well and is well aerated.

Re-pot when the plant has outgrown its pot. It's best to re-pot the offsets (small succulents - pups) in separate pots once they have grown enough.

Humidity is not a major concern for these, making the average room indoors sufficient
