Light-loving Walking Kalanchoe Plants for Sale Online
Kalanchoe synsepala, also known as Walking Kalanchoe, is an attractive plant in the cactus and succulent family that has light green tubular foliage with jagged, palish pink edges on the leaves. It likes bright light and infrequent waterings with an opportunity for the soil to dry out. Kalanchoe synsepala requires little maintenance and can thrive 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 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 as 60% peat moss, and 40% perlite. Cut back tall growth and old flower stems. Keep well watered in a sunny, warm window.
