Botanical name - Kalanchoe Thyrsiflora
Origin - Botswana, South Africa and Swaziland.
As an indoor plant I would love to be in a bright sunny spot - how about a South or South- West facing window. Although I may tolerate a lower light spot for a while my leaves my start to wilt and I will lose my gorgeous colour.
Please rotate me slightly each week to maintain a healthy even growth.
I love droughts and drenches. Please let the top inches of soil dry out before watering me. Water thoroughly until it runs out the bottom of the pot but don't leave me sitting in a puddle. Reduce watering in the wintertime when I am in my dormant phase. Overwatering is my biggest killer.
If repotting please use a cactus soil mix to prevent water-logging occurring around my roots. You can also add perlite or grit to the mix.
I rarely need fertiliser, if using a cactus fertiliser be sure to dilute it to half strength, and only in the growing months (April to September, no more than once a month).
