Help. I have been all over YouTube for instructions on how this divide this flapjack.
Its in for the winter and I am afraid it will become even bigger.
Do I uproot it and take babies off the side?
Can I cut the largest one in half?

What a beauty. Lovey dubby
Are there two separate plants Jo Ann? If so you can separate them if you want to.
How big is the container they are in now?

I think what looks like a second plant is a second growth from the main plant.
That pot is about 10 inches in diameter.

This is how it started in MayThumb of 2012-09-23/ge1836/a24472
It must be 4 times bigger now.

Wow, it sure grew fast. They are suppose to be easy to root, but I don't know much about them.

I see tarev has one. I would think she has quite a bit of knowledge to share on this plant. Maybe she can give you some advice?

Thanks I'll track her down.
I think the plantletts grow along the main stem and the second one in the pix is from the stem at the base.

Would love to see photos after you divide it. Maybe you can share the information you get on what to do? Would be great to add it to the database also.

I told her if it was not necessary to do anything I would abide by that. I probably will hear tomorrow.

Hey she replied to just leave the plant like it is.
I asked if I could copy her advise and send to you for the database.She gave an excellent rundown and pix of the plant from season to season. Paddle Plant (Kalanchoe luciae subsp. luciae)
The plantletts are called pups. So funny.

I just posted Tarevs reply in comments on the database.
I hope it will help other northerners who want to grow these hot country plants.

Great information. I think you will need to go back and delete the photo links, as they don't show up in the Comment area. Maybe you can put a link to each photo? Does she have those photos in the database some where?

If she can give you database links to those photos, you can add the links instead of the photo itself. Thumbs up

I'm all ears here. I'm all ears! I have 3 flapjack plants (1 to share) and will want to know what to do with them when they start growing. (just like the other 55 succulents I have) Boy am I over my head. I'm now addicted to WalMart, that's where I got most of mine this Summer.

Not sure right now Faye. I need to do an inventory of what tender succulents I have. Some I need to bring indoors for winter. Not sure how much room I will have once I get them moved. Sticking tongue out
Wow, I love the color you painted the walls. Lovey dubby

I am going to have Dave move this thread into the Cactus and Tender Succulent Forum so others interested in this type of plants can read this thread. It is full of great information.

Jo Ann I added the link to your above post, the one talking about information tarev gave you. Thumbs up
