by aditya abhishek


Kalanchoe is a genus of around 125 species of tropical succulents. The most popular species is "Kalanchoe blossfeldiana." To grow this plant, follow these guidelines. 


Kalanchoe can grow well in warm tropical climates. You can grow them in USDA zones 10 to 12. In cold temperate climates, keep them as a houseplant. 

Soil & Potting Mix

They love to grow well in sandy, well draining soils. Prepare potting mix with 40% soil + 30% river sand + 20% compost + 10% perlite. 


You can keep Kalanchoe plants under bright direct to indirect sunlight for at least 8 hours daily to promote good growth. 


Kalanchoe can grow well with minimal watering. Avoid waterlogging in the pot. Apply water when, top layer of soil becomes completely dry. 


They are not heavy feeders, that's why from spring to summer, once in a month, fertilize with a handful of dung manure and bonemeal to boost growth & flowering. 

Propagating Kalanchoe

You can propagate Kalanchoe by separating offsets from mother plant and planting them in the new pot any time.
