Low maintenance Walking Kalanchoe Succulents
Kalanchoe synsepala is an attractive plant in the cactus and succulent family that has light green tubular foliage with jagged, palish pink edges on the leaves and likes bright light and infrequent waterings. Kalanchoe synsepala is a durable potted plant requiring little maintenance as a house or office plant. It has green, thick leaves with jagged pink edges. They do well in containers indoors or could be planted outdoors in the summer either in containers or in the landscape. These plants grow best in full sun and a well-drained potting soil and will tolerate bright indoor light levels well. However, these plants tend to get leggy in low light conditions. Ideal temperatures are 45-65 °F at night and 50-70 °F during the day. Cool night temperatures prolong flower life. After flowering, shift the plant to a slightly larger pot. Kalanchoe synsepala are succulents that grow best in a well-drained and well- aerated potting soil, such 60% peat moss and 40% perlite. Cut back tall growth and old flower stems. Keep well watered in a sunny, warm window.

How to Care for Walking Kalanchoe Plants
Kalanchoe synsepala needs a very well draining soil, and prefer to have dry conditions. Regular potting mix with sand mixed in works well for plants potted in containers, otherwise a cactus potting mix would work. The cactus potting mix already has sand and other ingredients to encourage drainage. Any all-purpose, foliage fertilizer will work. Indoor houseplant fertilizers fall into two groups: water-soluble, liquid quick release, and granular, slow-release fertilizers. Jack's Classic Indoor plant food works well as a powder, quick release fertilizer that is mixed with water to quickly provide nutrients to a plant that has been in a container for an extended time. On the other hand, Biotone Starter or Osmocote Indoor/Outdoor is an option as a granular, slow-release fertilizer that can be applied while potting and planting. Any type of fertilizer offers nutrients that help plants with the transition to a new environment. All of these fertilizers may be used when planting Kalanchoe synsepala.
