Easy to grow succulent. Let dry between waterings. It is short day flowering, can be forced. I have grown this plant in San Francisco and it begins to bloom before the winter solstice. I have also grown this plant in Tampa, Fl and it blooms after the winter solstice here. Propagating this plant from stem cuttings is successful. Like many in the genus Kalanchoe it will form offspring, near the ends of the flowering stems, after flowering. I have had it form seeds, but, never attempted to grow them. The pups it forms can number in the hundreds on a well grown plant (6" pot). Grows best in moderate/cool tempatures, in summer will tolerate heat, but suffers leaf drop. High tempatures and excess watering can cause the stems to rot at ground level, these can be rerooted.
