Answer: I wait until the entire bloom cluster is spent, then cut the entire flowering stem off the plant, as far down into the plant as I can. This helps my kalanchoe look trim and tidy. Commercial growers simply cut the entire plant back a few inches after flowering, to encourage additional branching and more flowers. If you don't mind looking at some partially cut leaves for a while, this might be a technique you want to try.
Kalanchoes need a rest period after they've finished blooming. Place the plants in a shady spot and allow the soil to remain nearly dry for about a month. Then begin watering regularly and new growth will appear. Enjoy!
