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. Very fast growing, drought tolerant small shrub. Tolerates almost any conditions. Spectacular bloomer!
Members of Kalanchoe genus are characterized by opening their flowers by growing new cells on the inner surface of the petals to force them outwards, and on the outside of the petals to close them.
Species and varieties:
Kalanchoe x richaudii
Bryophyllum is a plant genus of the Crassulaceae family that has sometimes been included within the genus Kalanchoe. The group is notable for vegetatively growing small plantlets on the fringes of the leaves; these eventually drop off and root.
Kalanchoe synsepala is a very attractive succulent plant, up to 20 inches (50 cm) tall. The enormous fleshy leaves are with red margin. Flowers are tubular, very pale pink to reddish, small in dense terminal cymes. It produces baby plants at the ends of long stems, which eventually and bend down to the ground and take root, giving rise to its common name of Walking Kalanchoe.
This Kalanchoe has large paddle-shaped leaves which redden beautifully from the margins in direct sunlight. Leaves can grow to be 6 inches long and 3-4 inches wide. It will form a lovely clump over time. Very similar to Kalanchoe luciae.
Densely leafy shrub to 2 ft high branching from base; leaves and stems velvety, leaves 3" long and 1" wide with blotches on margins and at tips; yellow-green flowers. Kalanchoe tomentosa need full sun to light shade, or bright indirect lighting in the home. They need a well-drained soil and warm temperatures. Plants are watered and allow to dry thoroughly before watering again. During the winter months, plants are watered only enough to keep the leaves from shriveling.
Kalanchoe uniflora need full sun to partial shade with intermediate to warm temperatures. Let the plant dry thoroughly between waterings. Trimming and grooming should be done in spring after flowering.
