    Caring for your Kalanchoe

    Kalanchoes are a variety of succulent and are very hardy and easy to keep! The best part of a Kalanchoe is the long lasting flower! They can hold blooms for up to 3 months!

    • Cut off spent flower stems and pinch back leggy growth to force a compact plant.
    • Water the plant deeply and then allow it to dry out completely before you give it further moisture.
    • Fertilise once per month during the growing season with a flowering plant fertiliser.
