I think rabbits are eating my Kalanchoe plants. I especially noticed the yellow ones are eaten more. What do you suggest I use to deter them?

The best way to keep rabbits from your plants is with a barrier such as a cylinder made of hardware cloth or other wire mesh material. If that's not an option you can try using one of the foul-tasting repellants (Ropel, Deer Away, Liquid Fence) or you can try crumpling up chicken wire and placing it around susceptible plants. Bunnies tend not to walk on the crumpled wire for fear they will get their legs caught. Hope one of these strategies works for you!
