Kalanchoe blossfeldiana is a glabrous, succulent herd or subshrub that may develop woody stems with age.
Kalanchoe grows best in full sun and a well-drained soil. Allow the soil to dry between waterings but run it drier in winter. Fertilize actively growing plants with any house plant fertilizer according to label directions. Flowering occurs 4 months after exposure to 6 weeks of 14 hour nights. Ideal temperatures are 60 degrees at night and 70 degrees during the day. Start new plants from cuttings rather than reflower old plants. Repotting may be done in March.
Propagation is by cuttings.
