Fuzzy Kalanchoe

Native to Madagascar, this plant is a member of the family “crassula”. Fuzzy Kalanchoe is known to be a succulent plant, meaning it tends to go through the winter blues and if not taken care of appropriately, its vase life could decrease.

Unless you live in a very warm and cozy place, it’s best if you treat it as an indoor plant in the winter months.

Light: Fuzzy Kalanchoe will grow best when placed in a place containing a range of sunlight exposures all the way from full sunlight to partial shade. These plants are known to have fun in the sun, so if you keep it indoors, make sure to give your new succulent a sunny window position and watch it thrive on its own. PS: some light shade is beneficial and recommended as well.

Watering: During the summer season, it’s extremely important to give your Kalanchoe a good dose of H2O because they could tend to lean towards the drier side, and as a consequence, may end up in a fragile condition. A good way to water indoors is the “soak and drain” method. To do this, bring the plant to the sink and give it a good soak, allowing the water to drain out of the drain hole in the bottom of the pot.

*Food: * Although Kalanchoe is known to be a plant that prospers on its own, providing them with adequate fertilizer is key! This lovely plant only needs an occasional application of liquid fertilizer recommended for succulents and can be performed once a month from spring until the middle of the summer season.
