The Kalanchoe comes in many variations and colours and is an ideal indoor plant; for anyone who does not have a green thumb and of course for anyone who does. It is also an amazing plant to mix and match with other varieties of Kalanchoe and with other green or flowering indoor plants.
Moreover, is kalanchoe considered a succulent?
Kalanchoe is a succulent, which means its leaves store water. As these plants are native to warm, tropical places, it does best in a warm environment.
One may also ask, does kalanchoe like sun or shade?
Plant on 8 to 12-inch centers for the best effect. As an indoor plant in cooler climates, kalanchoe grows best in full sun or bright indirect light. This plant needs a very well-drained soil. Water thoroughly but let dry between watering.
Is kalanchoe a lucky plant?
Known as wan zi qian hong – meaning thousands and millions of red and purple in reference to its small flowers – the kalanchoe is an easy plant to grow and is said to bring wealth and prosperity.
Kalanchoe blossfeldiana often goes by the shortened name of Kalanchoe or by its more common names of Widow’s-thrill and Flaming Katy, derived from its colorful and vibrant blooms.
Kalanchoes, like many succulents, are super-easy to propagate, which is just a fancy word for producing more plants from your original. Just break off a leaf or a piece of leafy stem (not a flower stem), let it dry out for a couple of days, then stick it in a pot of dry soil.
Kalanchoe and Euphorbia succulents are two succulents that can be toxic to humans. Still, as a general rule with all house plants, it’s important to keep even non-toxic succulents out of reach of children and pets.
