Propogation by cuttings

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

It is propagated by stem cutting or by leaf cuttings in spring or summer. Leaves removed from the plant very carefully will produce small plant in about 4 weeks. Succulent cuttings root easily in moist sandy mix or perlite. Root three or four cuttings together in a single pot to give an almost ‘instant’ plant.

 

Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Kalanchoes do well in clay pots, and they must have a drainage tray that can be emptied. They’re small plants that don’t often have to be repotted.

 

Flowering

From Early Spring TO Late Winter

Many people choose to throw out the plant after it is done flowering, but it can re-bloom with a bit of time and patience. Cut off the flowering head and let the plant rest for about a month. Then give it at least 12-14 hours of continuous darkness followed by 10 hours of bright light for 6 weeks to develop buds. Reduce the watering and feeding during this time. Once the buds have formed, the plant can resume its normal light conditions.
