Kalanchoe is a plant genus from the family of the Crassulaceae (Crassulaceae), whose approx. 150 species are mainly found in southern Africa and Madagascar, but also in the Arabic region, India and East Asia. Kalanchoe are also called breeding leaf, which means that breeding buds are formed on the leaf edge.
Besides species with quite inconspicuous flowers there are also species with quite conspicuous flowers. It is important for the flower formation that the plants are not left in the bright light for too long in winter.
A bright to sunny location should be chosen for Kalanchoe.
As substrate a mixture of cactus and succulent soil and mineral parts is suitable.
When the soil has dried out, you can water again. Stagnant moisture must be avoided at all costs, which is why excess water should be drained off well.
Fertilizing can be done about once a month, i.e. about every four weeks.
In winter the temperature should be about 15°C. Fertilization is no longer used, watering is reduced.
Some Kalanchoe species are poisonous, so no guarantee can be given for compatibility with animals.
