Hi and welcome to NGA!

Here is a link to the Kalanchoe blossfeldiana page in our Plant Database - it will give you information that should help you out.

In my experience with this plant, the blooms are reliably seasonal in regard to longer nights, and start to form around the middle of winter, and continuing until late spring.

If you have not had your plant for long, it may have been manipulated into blooming at the time of sale, and should get back on a regular cycle of seasonal blooming as the seasons progress. Even if the temperatures do not change much in your location, the change in number of hours of daylight should trigger the blooms to form again.

Although this plant is a succulent from the Kalanchoe genus, it is not a species that copes well if the soil becomes completely dry. Becoming too dry can cause older foliage to shrivel prematurely, or even cause the death of roots.
