    Kalanchoe grandiflora

    All succulents can be described as fleshy to some degree, but this kalanchoe is positively indecent, a real fleshpot. A tall, upright succulent to 3 feet.

    Turquoise leaves suffused with peachblow. The peachblow will most likely not be as pronounced in summer as with winter temperatures.

    Kalanchoe grandiflora (Yellow Kalanchoe) - This succulent from India has thick upright stems to 3 feet tall bearing blue-green scalloped oval leaves. The leaves and young stems are often tinged a rose-violet color. Terminal spikes of fragrant yellow flowers appear in late spring - noted as not blooming regularly.

     

    Found at altitudes between 1000 and 2000 m in India , Kalanchoe Grandiflora is almost shrub-like , growing to over 1 meter high with stunning blue , rounded leaves and showy umbels of large golden yellow blooms in Summer. Easy warm germinator from a Spring or Summer sowing and will flower at quite a young age , gaining in size and performance every year eventually creating a spectacular summer display.

     

    Long lived and suited to climates that receive only light Winter frost or grown in pots and moved under shelter in cold Winter climates. Every succulent lover should have at least 1 in their collection!

     

    An interesting plant for its unusual foliage color and upright habit.   The name Kalanchoe is somewhat of a mystery - there is some thought that it comes from a phonetic transcription of the Chinese words 'Kalan Chauhuy' meaning "that which falls and grows", likely in reference to the plantlets that drop from many of the species but others believe it from the ancient Indian words 'kalanka' meaning "spot" or "rust" and 'chaya' meaning "glossy" in reference to the reddish glossy leaves of the Indian species K. laciniata.

    Kalanchoes are easy-to-care-for blooming houseplants that bloom in the winter when many other plants are resting. Because growers can manipulate the bloom, you will also see kalanchoe blooming in stores as a gift plant at other times of the year.

    1. Place your kalanchoe plant in bright light.

      • Place your kalanchoe in an east- or west-facing window during spring and summer.

      • Place your kalanchoe in a south-facing window from about November to March.

      • Place your kalanchoe in a lightly shaded area in a greenhouse or outdoors if you don’t want to grow it inside.

    1. Keep your kalanchoe warm. Temperatures between 55ºF and 80ºF (12.7 to 29 ºC) are ideal.

    1. Allow the soil surface to dry out before re-watering it. Then, water the plant until water drains out the pot bottom. Discard any water collected in trays or saucers.

    1. Cut the kalanchoe back to 3” (7.6 cm) with pruning shears after it finishes blooming. Blooming can last as long as 3 months.

    1. Set the pot back away from bright light and don’t water the pot for a month after you’ve pruned it.

    1. Bring the pot back into a bright window after a month and water it well.

    1. Fertilize the kalanchoe with a blooming houseplant fertilizer according to label directions after watering and then once a month until November.

    1. Remove any dead leaves and dust growing leaves with a damp cloth if needed.
