Best way to Care for your Kalanchoe Indoors
How much water should I give my Kalanchoë? After all, it’s a succulent?
Give your Kalanchoë a little water every week during the summer and the same amount every two weeks in the winter. This will ensure that they flower and continue to look attractive for months.
Should I give my Kalanchoë any fertiliser?
Yes indeed. Your Kalanchoë will enjoy receiving a little fertiliser for succulents added to its water once every 2 or 3 weeks. Doing this will keep it attractive even longer (especially during the winter). It will produce even more flowers outdoors than indoors. And it doesn’t need a lot of water either: a moderately moist soil is perfect. Giving it a little fertiliser every month will be sufficient.
What is the best temperature at which to keep my Kalanchoe?
Room temperature is ideal, but your Kalanchoe will also perform perfectly well at temperatures between 10°C and 25°C.
Where is the best place to put my Kalanchoe indoors?
The best place for your plants would be where they will receive light. A Kalanchoë can also tolerate direct sunlight, so even a window sill facing the southwest would be no problem. Be sure, however, to provide enough water.
