This colourful plant has fast become one of my new favourites to Kokedama and my new wrapping technique as made them look like they’re sitting in natural pots, rather than just in a moss ball.
☀️ Grow in bright sunny locations indoors (always indirect light) and bright filtered light or morning sun outdoors. In winter, beat to keep them inside.
💧 Like many succulents, these are not difficult plants to grow, providing you are careful with the water, especially in the winter. LESS IS BEST until you get a feel for your new friend.
Water moderately throughout the summer and reduce watering in the winter. Let the soil surface of the Kokedama dry out between waterings (the ball will be light in weight). Watch the fleshy leaves for signs of water distress and always come back to me with questions before if your Koke isn’t looking happy. Please contact me BEFORE you do anything drastic.
🌿🌸 Many people discard the plants after the bloom is over but I find that the lush green leaves are also beautiful and the flowers are the icing on the cake so to speak. When it’s finished flowering, simple cut off the flower head and let the plant rest with reduced water. It should flower naturally in spring.
I just found this amazing hint to force the plant to bloom again:
[Place the plant in a closet or under a box for 14 hours and provide 10 hours of bright light. Keep the plant warm and away from drafts. Do not water or feed the plant for 6 weeks, as it is dormant. As soon as you see flower buds, move the plant to brighter lighting and resume watering.] We shall see!
☝️🐱🐶 Kalanchoes are known to be poisonous to cats and dogs and other wildlife.
A very hardy plant that will suffer if you over love it. Ie: too much water is NOT good for this plant. Root or will set in and..... no one likes wet feet.
I’ve got mediums and smalls available in various colours. DM for more info.
