Herein, how do you repot a flapjack succulent?
Keeping this in view, are flapjack plants poisonous?
All parts of the flapjack are toxic to humans, cats, and dogs. That includes the leaves, roots, but especially the flowers. If your Kalanchoe thyrsiflora flowers, take extra caution to keep it away from small children and pets. The flowers are the most toxic part of the plant.
How do you propagate Kalanchoe Flapjack?
The easiest way to propagate kalanchoe is to plant leaves or leaf cuttings in spring or summer. Set leaves or cuttings aside for a couple of days, or until the cut end develops a callus. You can also remove offsets that grow on the side of a mature paddle plant.
Flapjacks grow slowly and take several years to grow a few inches. At full maturity, the succulent can be 18 inches tall and wide. Keep surrounding plants far from the flapjack so it can spread over the years.
Why are my paddle plant leaves curling? Watering or light issues are usually to blame for paddle plant leaves starting to curl. Flapjack paddle plants grow best in dry, sandy soil and need to be watered occasionally. Also, the potted succulent should grow in bright light, and some direct sunlight is fine.
As long as you give them a well drained soil and plenty of sun, they will keep out of mischief.
- Part shade to full sun.
- Water occasionally, allowing the plant to dry out well between waterings.
- Well drained soil.
- Suited to all climatic conditions.
Although these plants are monocarpic (they only flower once), they’re easy to propagate from. Mature and healthy specimens are fast-growing and readily produce new offsets.
Kalanchoe bracteata can be easily propagated by stem and leaf cuttings. The propagation process is simple. Just snip off the plant part you want to use for propagation with a clean scissor and let it callous for a couple of days at a warm dry place.
Most likely what is causing the drooping leaves is lack of light; that and the pale color of the leaves is an indication that the plant needs brighter light with higher intensity – they can take full sun, which turns the leaves a beautiful reddish pink.
