How to Keep Your Kalanchoe Blooming

Kalanchoe plants are popular for their vibrant, long-lasting blooms and easy care. To keep your kalanchoe healthy and beautiful, follow these simple tips.

First, make sure your kalanchoe gets plenty of bright, indirect sunlight. This will help it produce more flowers and keep its leaves looking full and green.

Water your kalanchoe sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Overwatering can cause root rot and harm the plant. It’s better to err on the side of underwatering than overwatering.

Fertilize your kalanchoe once a month with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer. This will provide the nutrients it needs to continue blooming. Be careful not to over-fertilize, as this can also harm the plant.

If your kalanchoe gets too tall and leggy, don’t be afraid to trim it back. This will help it maintain a compact, bushy shape and stimulate new growth.

Kalanchoes are susceptible to certain pests, such as mealybugs and spider mites. Check your plant regularly for signs of infestation, such as sticky residue on the leaves or small webs. If you notice pests, treat your plant with an organic insecticide or a mixture of water and dish soap.

With a little kalanchoe care, you can enjoy the beautiful blooms of this easy-to-grow plant for months to come.
