For the kalanchoe, Lighting is best when placed in an east or west facing from spring to autumn, and south window in the winter. Water thoroughly, let the soil dry out between waterings. Misting is not necessary. Repot every year in the summer. Fertilize in the same manner as the hibiscus. Try impatients as an alternate east / shade flowering plant.
