Kalanchoe pumila is a dwarf succulent shrub up to 12 inches (30 cm) tall native to Madagascar. The entire plant is densely covered with 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) long rounded leaves that are toothed and covered with soft whitish waxy hairs which give the plant a frosted look. In late winter to early spring clusters of erectly-held 0.25 inch (0.6 cm) long pink-violet flowers with conspicuous yellow anthers appear.

Kalanchoes are not particularly hard to grow, and the flowering varieties are highly rewarding for their colorful and long-lasting flowers. Many people discard the plants after the bloom is over, but this isn’t really necessary. Simply cut off the flowering head, let the plant rest with reduced water, and resume its normal care. It should flower naturally in spring.

To keep them alive:

  • Position - They prefer bright, sunny locations, especially in the summer growing season. During the winter, consider a south-facing window.
  • Temperature - They prefer warmth. Do not let fall below 12ºC
  • Drink - Water moderately throughout the summer and reduce watering in the winter. Let the soil surface dry out between waterings, and in the winter, the plant can almost dry out.
  • Feed - Feed bi-weekly in the summer with a liquid fertilizer, or use slow-release pellets.
  • Top Tips - Watch the fleshy leaves for signs of water distress.
