The Q&A Archives: new flower

Question: I am not sure how it is spelt, but just bought some kalocho or kalancha, thick leaves and very small flower in bunches from stem. Is this an outdoor flower or inside?

Answer: Your plant is Kalanchoe and it is a succulent but it cannot tolerate frosts. If your garden regularly experiences freezing temperatures plan on growing your Kalanchoe in a pot and keeping it indoors over the winter months. You can set the pot outdoors in a partly sunny area in the spring and summer months. Kalanchoe is easy to grow: water thoroughly and then let the top of the soil dry out before watering again. Give a few hours of morning sunshine and then shade in the afternoon outdoors or set the pot on a sunny windowsill indoors. Enjoy our new plant!
