A lot of people hate this plant. I have had for many years and liked it maybe if I lived in a warm climate and it was seeding all over the garden I might hate it. But I killed it last winter. I forgot to bring it in it was hiding behind something.

I went in search of another and found this pretty one. I had never seen a pink one. All the ones I had seen were greenish blueish.

You ask why do I like it.....Because it is one of my most prettiest winter bloomers.

This is the new pink one I found. Isn't it pretty?

Cinta,
New plant to me. I just got a piece of one from 'Karyn1' on the other site we view. It now is growing and seems interesting. I do like the pink one you got. Hurray!

Yes I bet it is. In the right conditions, it is a moster. I have killed the Kalamchoe ones in the stores that look great in flower. Too much watering. Now I am starting to lear more.

No, I don't think you 'killed' them. The K blossfeldiana tends to die after blooming which is not uncommon in succulents.

That is why I like the K. Daigremontianas. Very pretty Cinta, I like the pink tones. Does the color change with the seasons?

The mother plant does die after blooming. They are very invasive here too but I keep one on the roof in a pot where it can't escape and take over. After it blooms in the fall I pick one of the pups and repot it. Here are some pics of mine from last fall.

The whole plant as it was starting to bloom in October 2011.

Does the color change with the seasons? Pod I do not know because I have only had it for 6 months.

I killed mine because I left it out in the snow it was not because of the bloom. I left the entire pot and old man winter took it away. Rolling on the floor laughing
