Basic Kalanchoe Plant Care

If you love succulents, Kalanchoe is the best for you. These plants possess not only stunning foliage and patterns but also flowers that can brighten up your space.

Kalanchoe is a low-maintenance plant, but it does not mean it can thrive in any condition or under constant neglect.

If you want to bring these succulents home, you need to maintain the ideal condition for their proper growth.

Proper lighting, watering, nutrition, temperature, humidity are to be maintained for Kalanchoe.

But, when it comes to planting, always remember, the more care, the healthier.

Here are the basic care tips for your Kalanchoe.

1. Lighting Condition

As Kalanchoe are succulents, light is an important factor for their growth. Moreover, sunlight is responsible for the colorful foliage in succulents.

When the plant does not receive ample sunlight light, it grows leggy and thin. Therefore, light is an important factor while growing Kalanchoe.

Kalanchoe does its best in partial sunlight and bright indirect light. However, it depends upon varieties as well. Some varieties of Kalanchoe enjoy full sun.

However, most of the flowering Kalanchoe do not enjoy the full sun as it burns their flowers.

To protect from high-intensity sunlight, draw light curtains that block direct light.

You can also place the plant in direct light only in the morning and avoid the direct midday sun.

As a general rule, Provide your Kalanchoe with 8-10 hours of bright indirect sunlight with 2-3 hours of morning direct light or afternoon shades.

The best place to grow Kalanchoe is a western or southern facing window where it gets ample sunlight.

Unfortunately, if your home does not have a sunny spot, you can grow your Kalanchoe in artificial light.

I recommend using HId lights as they have both red and blue spectrum essential for the growth of foliages and flowers. Provide them with 9-12 hours of artificial light.

Also, it is important to rotate your plant to obtain balanced growth. Therefore, make sure to rotate your Kalanchoe in a couple of weeks.

2. Temperature Requirement

Like many other house plants, Kalanchoe requires a temperature between 60-85 degrees F.

It is the normal indoor temperature, so you do not have to worry about the temperature.

However, you should not keep your Kalanchoe near cold, drafty vents or heating vents as it causes temperature fluctuation.

Also, avoid keeping these plants in windows during winter.

3. Humidity Requirement

As the natural habitat of Kalanchoe is in a dry and rocky place, it does not require high humidity.

However, maintain a humidity about or below 40% of the relative humidity for their proper growth.

The normal indoor humidity is between 30-50% of the relative humidity. So, you do not have to put in extra effort to maintain the ideal humidity for Kalanchoe.

If you are growing Kalanchoe indoors, avoid groping plants, misting leaves, or using a humidifier to increase humidity.

When the humidity is too high, Kalanchoe develops plant diseases such as leaf spots or powdery mildew.

Moreover, do not place your Kalanchoe in places where humidity is normally higher, like bathrooms and kitchens.

4. Watering Requirement

As succulents, Kalanchoe need not be watered frequently. It is a very forgiving plant and is good for plant newbies.

Water your Kalanchoe only after the soil completely dries out. To determine whether the soil is dry, insert a stick to the soil; water only if the stick is dry.

Generally, water your Kalanchoe once or twice a week in summer and twice or thrice a month in winter.

However, watering frequency and water requirements also depends on the kalanchoe varieties. In addition, some of the Varieties demand more water, especially during winter.

Soil Mix for Kalanchoe

Avoid using regular garden soil as it increases compaction and decreases aeration in the roots.

Also, maintain a soil pH range between 6.0 to 6.5 for Kalanchoe. 

6. Fertilizer Requirement

Kalanchoe is succulents native to dry and harsh climatic conditions. Therefore, they do not require high fertilization.

However, fertilize your Kalanchoe with all-purpose liquid fertilizer, balanced NKP fertilizer (20-20-20), or any organic fertilizer twice or thrice a year during summer and spring.

7. Correct Pot For Kalanchoe

For Kalanchoe, you can use any type of pot material, but it should have enough drainage holes.

Nonetheless, Terracotta or clay pot is best as the water oozes out from them, which helps to maintain dry soil for Kanachoe.

Generally, Kalanchoe grows double the size of the pot. for example, it reaches a height of 4 inches when grown in a 2-inch pot.

Therefore, you can choose the pot size depending upon your requirement.

However, do not use an extremely small pot as it faces root bound problems.

Moreover, you can use hanging baskets for species like chandelier plants, Beach bells, Coral bells, etc.

8. Repotting Kalanchoe

Kalanchoe is not among the plants that adore or tolerate root-bound. On the contrary, they prefer to spread their roots freely, so it is advisable to repot them annually.

Repot your Kalanchoe in the fall when the plants stop blooming. It helps to maintain plant vitality and also helps to develop new growth.

As a general rule, repotting your Kalanchoe Succulent every two years is good. This will supply your plants with a new and fresh growing substrate, allowing them to develop faster.

9. Flower Care

For Kalnchole to bloom at its best, it needs proper nutrition, watering, and ample sunlight. When the plant lacks sufficient light, it stops blooming.

However, extreme sun exposure can also sometimes result in fewer blooms. Harsh sunlight can burn the buds before blooming and also burn the flower.
