KalanchoeThe Kalanchoe comes from tropical Africa (Madagascar) and belongs to the Crassulaceae family (a family of succulents). There are more than 200 different species of this plant, varying from hanging plants and abundantly flowering plants to plants with different coloured flowers, indoor plants and outdoor plants. Ideally the plant should be kept at a temperature of ± 20 șC (room temperature), but the plant is easily able to withstand temperatures varying from 12 șC to 30 șC. Put the Kalanchoe in a warm spot and make sure that it gets plenty of light (direct sunlight is not a problem), otherwise the plant is unable to flower. The plant doesnt need much water because it stores water in its leaves. When watering the plant add some plant food to the water once every two to three weeks. The Kalanchoe can flower all year round and can produce a real abundance of quaternary flowers. Any flowers that have wilted can be removed. One of the positive properties of the plant is that its growth is limited in a small space, which does away with the need for repotting.
