If you’re looking to grow a succulent with a little extra beauty, look no further than the Kalanchoe plant. Like most succulents, Kalanchoe is a relatively hands-off varietal, preferring plenty of sunlight and well-draining soil. It’s also suited to a variety of temperatures, but will not bloom during the winter months. However, beginning in spring, you’ll be treated to bursts of colorful flowers that can last several weeks and can reoccur throughout the year, as long as the plant receives the proper light exposure and is pruned correctly between blooms by removing the flowering heads and providing minimal watering for a few weeks.SunlightLight
Kalanchoe plants need a lot of sunlight to bloom, so they should be kept in a room with an abundance of bright, natural light. Avoid placing them on windowsills or in direct sunlight, however, as it can scorch the leaves and cause the plant not to bloom.

Light: Place your succulent anywhere it can receive plenty of suns or bright light. Avoid intense, direct sunlight until the plant has acclimatized to its new environment.

Water: If you have a habit of forgetting to water your plants every once in a while, a Kalanchoe may be the perfect pick for you. The hearty plant does well with minimal water, requiring a complete saturation only every few weeks or so (and even less often during the winter months). Let the soil of your Kalanchoe dry out completely in between waterings (this helps to prevent root rot), then water to the point of saturation. If you’re not sure if the soil is adequately dry (and therefore, ready to be watered), simply stick your finger into the first few inches—if you feel any moisture at all, check back again in a few days. Because the Kalanchoe is succulent, its leaves are actually capable of storing water, so even if you time you are watering a few days late, the plant will be just fine. Water when soil is dry to the touch, which is approximately every 7 – 10 days. Avoid water daily. Water them more in spring and summer and less in winter, and it’s better to underwater them than overwater them.

Soil: A Kalanchoe plant will grow best in well-drained soil, so choose or create a blend that doesn’t retain too much moisture, like a 50 percent potting soil and 50 percent cactus mix or a 60 percent peat moss and 40 percent perlite mix. Make sure the soil is moist at all times during the spring and summer months.

Fertilizer Like most flowering plants, Kalanchoe can benefit from fertilizer. This is especially important around the time of bloom, so feed with a well-balanced fertilizer blend once a month during the spring and summer months. If you’re struggling to help your plant achieve its flowering potential, look for a fertilizer blend that includes potassium, which can help it produce added buds next time it blooms.

Is Kalanchoe Toxic?
Unfortunately, Kalanchoe is considered very toxic to animals, including cats, dogs, and livestock. The leaves and flowers of the plant contain a chemical compound called bufadienolide.

Symptoms of Poisoning
Ingestion of the Kalanchoe plant by an animal can result in severe symptoms of poisoning, including vomiting, diarrhea, and abnormal heart rhythm. Keep your Kalanchoe plant out of the reach of pets, and contact your vet or poison control immediately if one has been ingested.

Initial Planting And Care

“Initial care for 1-2 weeks after receiving plant at your location:
Keep the plant in natural indirect bright Light.
Poke your finger/plain small stick into the soil to check the moisture.
Water when topsoil (1-2 inches) feels dry to touch.
Do not re-pot for min. 2 weeks after receiving it.

Standard Gardening Guide

1. Plant Watering Guide
 First, check the moisture in the soil by following below steps
 a. Poke your finger or plain small stick in the soil
 b. Check the moisture that you feel on a finger or on the stick
 If soil is muddy: No water required. Check moisture after 2-3 days.
 If the soil feels a little moist: No water is required. Check moisture the next day.
 If soil is completely dry: Apply water thoroughly till the water comes out of drainage holes. Make sure that the water is not standing in the pot. Soil should be well-drained. 
As a  rule of thumb, plants need more water in the summer season and less water in the winter and rainy seasons.

2. Plant Light Requirement Guide
Direct Sunlight: Area with as much direct sunlight light as possible.
Indirect light with some direct sunlight: Brightly lit, with some sunlight falling on the leaves during the day (Especially the morning direct sunlight)
Indirect Bright Light: Brightly lit but not with direct sunlight falling on the leaves. It is the light near a window or door. Many foliage house plants will flourish in this light.
Low light: Moderately lit, with no direct sunlight falling on the leaves. A person can read a book in this light.
Very low light: Poorly lit, a person will not be able to read a book in this light.

 Tips:
1) Lighting is not just about providing brightness to the plant. It is the duration of light and its intensity that decides the growth of the plant.
2) There should be at 12-14 hours of required light that may be natural or artificial in order to maintain active plant growth whereas the light intensity varies greatly from plant to plant.
3) When using artificial lights; try to use LED lights or fluorescent tubes to minimize the effect of heat on the plants. The ideal distance between an artificial light source and plant is 1 ft.
