My grand daughter brought this plant from school..it had no babies and a white mildew on it that turned into brown spots....It was outside all summer..it did not get worse but did not get better,,,now inside it is dropping it's leaves.
I would like to save it but have not found any help! Can I save it...I want to repot it but do not want to create more trauma!
Any help would be appreciated!!

A photo of a single leaf is not helpful. Please post a photo that shows the entire plant, including its pot.Thanks.

Since asking my question I have lost three more leaves...I do not want to try to start or safe this plant if it is diseased ...it is pretty pathetic!

Your Kalanchoe needs lots of direct indoor sunlight, a small pot with a porous potting mix that gets pretty dry every week or so. I am concerned that the roots have already been severely compromised.

I have a grow light...would that help until it is healthier! I can move it to a west window or an east window! Thanks for the help!

An east or west window that is completely uncovered should be fine.
