Description: This kalanchoe has large nodding pale blue green leaves tinged a faded red along scalloped margins. Above the leaves in late spring early summer, clusters of dangling orange flowers give appearances of a birthday cake more than a plant. As with any succulent, do not pot or plant in store-bought soils. Make your own succulent soil mix with partially decomposted pine bark fines, perlite, expanded shale and lava pumice. If you're water is hard or saline, treat your succulent to purified water. Water deeply and infrequently, before the soil becomes solid and hydrophyllic. Fertilize once per year in spring with a slow time release.
