When I first got this plant over a year ago, it had little flowers. After the flowers died off, it never bloomed again but the leaves continued to sprout. I would like to know if it will ever flower again or if there's anything I can do to have it flower again.

You have a Florist Kalanchoe (Kalanchoe blossfeldiana). It hasn't bloomed again because its in desperate need of more light.

Here is the entry in our database:

Flaming Katy (Kalanchoe blossfeldiana)

Do you see how compact the flowering plants are? Kalanchoe need a sunny window. Slowly introduce your plant to the sunnier location. Too fast and you will sunburn it.

Thank you for the info. Actually it had been sitting on a window sill with morning sun for a year and I just recently moved it from the window to transfer it to a bigger pot. Would it be better not to keep it in my air conditioned office?
