@crabby58 most of these were cuttings, so idk how old they actually were. From plantlets (like what I sent you) it seems to take at least 2 years for them to get to flowering size even in ideal conditions. From mature cuttings it seems like they can flower immediately.
Went over to my mom's house today and had to break into the backyard to find her. 🤣 Passed her forest of blooming kalanchoes on the way, and couldn't resist a few pics. I couldn't even fit them all in one photo.
My mom's plants, growing in the ground along a walkway on the side of her house. They get to be 3 or 4 ft tall, and then send up a flower stalk (the red thing in the background) that's another 1.5ish ft tall. Takes about 2 yrs for the full life cycle. After that the plant gets unshapely and tired looking, so she just rips it up and replants a cutting in its place, if it hasn't dropped some plantlets nearby that have rooted and taken off already.
My mom gave me some cuttings several months ago, and these kalanchoes are the last thing I haven't dealt with yet. They've got no soil, and had no water, but this stupid thing is determined to bloom. 😆
@crabby58 idk what the heck I did with the Post Office receipt with the tracking #, but I sent you a lil package of Kalanchoe plantlets on Monday, so it should be arriving anyday. There's a leaf of some random succulent in there, too, that had started growing a plant already. Idk what it is. 😅
That's adorable. 😆 My dog walks out to the mailbox with me, too, but she's only interested in sniffing the fire hydrant on the corner and sometimes pooping on the neighbor's unkempt lawn (which I do pick up). 😅 @crabby58
