Several species of Kalanchoe may be found growing as houseplants in Canada and the USA. The young plantlets which grow along the leaf edges are easily dislodged to become new plants and can be found in profusion around the base of the adult plant. Blooms with showy bright pink bells. Easy to grow, tolerates drought and almost any conditions.
Very prolific round tubular leaves forming plantlets on the ends that quickly start new plants if they fall to the ground. This plant needs a rather dry atmosphere and complete exposure to sunlight. Throughout the summer, the soil should be kept moist, but in the winter, very little water is needed.
Bush with several branches 12" to 19" long; bluish-green leaves 1" to 2" long and 1" to 3" wide with brown margins; inflorescence 12" tall brownish-pink flowers. In full sun the leaves take on pink color.
This rare variety brought from Thailand has large fleshy leaves 1-2 ft in length. Leaves and stems are covered with silvery coating. Flowers are very showy, red with orange-yellow or light yellow. When planted in groups, these plants make very unforgettable view, covered with flame-like flowers. Like other kalanchoes, leaflets form easily, they are fuzzy and silver. Easy to grow just from one leaf set on top of moist soil. Very fast growing, drought tolerant small shrub. Tolerates almost any conditions.
Native Hawaiian plant. Easy to grow just from one leaf set on top of moist soil. Very fast growing, drought tolerant small shrub. Tolerates almost any conditions. Spectacular bloomer! Other common names: Donkey Ears; Life Plant; Miracle Leaf; Sprouting Leaf; Sprout Leaf Plant; Leaf of Life; Resurrection Plant; Canterbury Bells; Cathedral Bells; Mexican Love Plant; Floppers; Good Luck Leaf; Tree Of Life; Hawaiian Air Leaf; Palm Beachbells.

A very interesting giant specie, inch thick jointed stems are waxy, as are the opposite pairs of fleshy, succulent leaves. Terminal inflorescence of yellow flowers from dangling four-sided box-like bracts yields a multitude of plantlets. Propagation: Bulbils coming after the flowers, underground stolons.
Kalanchoe beharensis need full sun to part shade with intermediate to warm temperatures. Water sparingly at all times. The use of fertilizer is discouraged. They thrive in nutrient poor soils (equal amounts of loam and sand with gravel added for drainage). The stems are usually unbranched and may reach a height of 10 feet or more. Propagation: Kalanchoe beharensis is propagated by the removal of plants around the base of the main plant and by leaf cuttings. K.B.'Fang' is named for the stippled, fang-like texture on the underside of its leaves. A superb cultivar of beharensis. Habit of growth is similar to beharensis but the leaves are smaller. The leaves have brown margins in ideal light.
Kalanchoe blossfeldiana flowers in late autumn to early winter; each flower has four petals and can be one of a wide variety of colours, from the dark reds and pinks to oranges, golds and whites.
Genus of about 130 species. Perennial in character, but generally treated as an annual. Grown indoors or out for its bright flowers and ornamental, fleshy foliage. Hybrids are available in colors yellow, orange, red, pink, purple and variant of these. Flowers are produced in small clusters and are tubular in shape. Avoid using cold water when watering plants, this will shock the plant. Allow to dry between waterings. Remove flower stalks after flowering.
