I'd just like to show my kalanchoe (and invite you to as well) in beautiful bloom of pink, coral, and variegated of both (All on the same plant and grown to look like a tree). I love it so much!

Very interesting, Brian. Did you purchase it in that tree-form or did you develop it that way?

I actually got this from a vendor at my local farmers market that also sells honey, i saw it this summer 2017 and had to swipe it up because it was only 3.99 Drooling

Great find and an even better price! If you want to keep it in its tree form, you will need to prune it back sharply after each blooming period.

Here is my Kalanchoe Blossfeldiana. Just now blooming again. I'm going to try to create a tree form plant from the one straight stem. I'll still have plenty of plants to make many more.

I need to trim the plant down this spring to get the stems thicker. Smiling
Here is closer photo of the blooms.

One of my favs! These are pics from previous years. A fun subject on which to practice bonsai techniques, excellent tiny trees in mini gardens. The stems naturally become lignified with age. I'll take some current pics while watering this weekend.

Tiffany the yellows are pretty too! Do you start these Kalanchoes by acquiring a small plant and then letting it grow bigger? I only have the red one and would like to expand my repertoire. Smiling

TY! I started with 1 of each color & have taken countless cuttings to create more plants. Most of them have been given away as gifts.
