I’m in zone 9b (SoCal). I have a North facing, covered balcony, but I love succulents! I propagate everything and I like “saving” neglected plants.

My succulent pots at my parents house are all just shoved together and they’ve been neglected (so they’re all blooming, of course). So I moved my #motherofthousands out today and there were at least 100 babies growing in the old wet leaves collected between pots! Of course, I have to try to save every single one. 🙄 #succulent #babies #kalanchoe

Why does this happen to my #kalanchoe ? When they flower, the whole stalk loses its leaves and I’m just left with a long bare stalk with new growth at the top. It’s happened to other kalanchoe species, too. 🙁 #bloom #motherofthousands #succulent #babies #help

Trim the flowers off right before they die. Could be getting too much water. It looks leggy as well. Mine is embarrassingly leggy, but thriving. Haven’t had a flower in a year. Time for me to propagate!
