Comments: This species produces flowers that vary in color from white to deep red and many shades between these two. The one here produces bright red flowers and thick, succulent-like foliage with wavy, toothed margins and is normally grown as a container plant. Kalanchoes are highly promoted in the trade during the holiday season. Provide a well drained soil and full sunlight. After blooming, cut back old floral clusters to encourage new growth and repeat flowering. Kalanchoes cannot tolerate freezing temperatures
