    Kalanchoe thyrsiflora(also known as Paddle Plant, Flapjacks, Desert Cabbage, White Lady, Geelplakkie, Meelplakkie, Plakkie) is a species of Kalanchoe, native to South Africa. A succulent plant producing a stalk about 1m tall, dying back after flowering. It forms a basal rosette of large, rounded, fleshy stalkless leaves, which are grayish-green with red margins, covered with a white powdery bloom. The inflorescence is terminal and erect with densely clustered thyrse-like panicles of greenish waxy flowers with yellow recurved lobes, narrowly urn-shaped. Flowering from autumn to spring. Common in grassveld amongst rocks.

    Widespread over Asia, Africa and Madagascar, the genus is distinguished by its flowers, which have their parts in fours, the stamens being in 2 whorls of 4.

    Kalanchoe rotundifolia

    Kalanchoe rotundifolia is a brittle succulent plant which grows up to 1m tall under favourable conditions. Adanson who derived the name Kalanchoe from the Chinese name for one of the species, described this genus in 1763. The species name rotundifolia comes from the Latin and means "round leaves".

    It is a orange-flowering species with a slender stem. It has fleshy, rounded or lobed leaves that are 2.5cm broad and are clustered at the base of erect stems. It must be noted that some of these plants, although with the species name rotundifolia, have leaves that are not round. They were grouped together because they had other similarities.

    The genus Kalanchoe typically has a tubular flower. Flowers are borne in an inflorescence with a long erect stalk. The flat-topped inflorescence consists of yellow or orange flowers and often become red and conspicuously twisted when old. The flowering period occurs through autumn and early winter (February until June).

    Kalanchoe rotundifolia is widely distributed in South Africa and Zimbabwe.

    It is a delightful little plant that puts up a brave show in clumps among trees and shrubs. The robust red flowering specimens are rewarding garden plants, flowering for many weeks.

    Kalanchoe rotundifolia is traditionally used by the Zulu as a charm to make one invisible.

     

    Growing Kalanchoe rotundifolia

    This is an easy plant to propagate from both seed and cuttings. The seeds of these plants are very fine and must be collected as soon as they are ripe before they disperse. The best time to sow these seeds will be early spring in order to give them plenty of time to grow before late autumn. Sowing may be done either in seedling containers or directly into the garden.

    Ideal cuttings for propagation are semi-hardwood and soft tip cuttings. Cuttings should be planted into river sand and there is no need to apply root-stimulating hormones. Each leaf is capable of producing a new plant when it drops to the ground. The rooted cuttings or seedlings must be planted in dry, shady conditions.

    This is a good plant for a low maintenance and water-wise garden. In summer rainfall regions there is no need to water as rain will be sufficient. Kalanchoe rotundifolia will successfully seed itself in the garden and once it is established it will persist for many years.

    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.  

     

    Maintenance Notes:

    Succulents are long term plants where temperatures remain warm. Garden height is the final height the plant will reach after several years, not the height the plant will reach in one season. Succulents are generally slow growing plants and will take time to mature.

    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.

    These are exactly like the description. No surprises when I opened up my package. I planted these on 3/19 and by 3/24 I already had little sprouts. Thank you!
