Caring for Bryophyllum

  • Plant it in a terra cotta pot with drainage holes in the bottom.
  • Use a sandy, well drained soil such as a cactus potting mix or one part peat moss mixed with two parts loam and sand.
  • Repot in the spring but only if the plant outgrows its pot.
  • Use a container that is only slightly larger than the original pot.
  • Place your plants in a bright location with plenty of direct sunlight.
  • Kalanchoe plants require a minimum of four hours of sun daily and grow best in temperatures that range between 50 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Water after the soil dries to a depth of about 2 inches during the spring and summer months with room-temperature water.
  • Add water to the potting mix and not the plant itself. To prevent rot, do not allow the leaves to get wet.
  • Feed every three months between March and September using a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted by half.
  • Bring your plants indoors before the first frost or if the temperature drops below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Reduce watering during the winter months using just enough water to keep the soil moist.
