My Kalenchoe is very dry, I clipped some of the dry leaves and flowers, I water it everyday, what can I do to make it bloom like it was before.

I think you are overwatering your kalanchoe and the roots are drowning, which is making the foliage wilt and look dry. After watering your plant, allow the soil to dry out before watering again. Kalanchoes are succulents and prefer fast draining soils and only occasional watering. They bloom on their own cycle, so nurse yours back to health with less water and either full sun or a bright window indoors. After it has finished blooming it will rest for a few months and then bloom again. Hope this helps you help your plant recover.
