    Kalanchoe thyrsiflora

    These seeds were harvested this season.   We carry a lot of extremely rare cactus if you want something rare let me know and I will listing for you.   Feel free to email me with any questions.

    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.



    Fleshy, paddle-like leaves form rosettes that resemble the shape of a clamshell; bears clusters of fragrant tubular flowers in early spring

    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.

  1. Based on shipping and condition 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2018

    My review is based only on the condition and shipment of the "Kalanche Succulent". Product was received in a timely manner. Since these are seeds and not plants I would rate on condition. The seeds are very healthy looking, I am not getting into succulents and cactus plants, and am very excited. I was totally satisfied with the growing and planting instructions given by the company "My Seeds CO." Maybe as the plants begin to grow, I'll update my review.
