Watering

These plants are Succulents with fleshy leaves and stems (which they store water in) and you don’t want to keep them constantly wet. They need good drainage.

Water yours well, let it all drain out and then water again when dry.

That might mean you water yours every 2 weeks.

The frequency will vary depending on your temps, light situation, and the size pot your Kalanchoes are in.

I water mine a bit more often when it’s flowering.

They don’t need to be misted or sprayed but if yours is really dirty, give it a good hose off once a year.

If your Kalanchoe comes wrapped in foil or in a decorative pot with no drain hole, remove the plant when you water it.

You don’t want water building up in the foil or in a saucer because that will lead to root rot.

 

Temperature

Normal home temps are fine. The summer and winter temps really vary here in Tucson and my Kalanchoe outside (in bright shade) does okay. I also grew them outdoors when I lived in Santa Barbara where the temps were much less extreme and they were much happier. As with any flowering plant, the hotter your home is the faster the flowers will open up, and the shorter the period of bloom will be.v
