Kalanchoe Luciae 'Fantastic' variation is such a pretty little plant. It has green and yellow color on the paddle leaves and the tip is bright pink to red in cold condition/temperature. In summer time almost the entire leave turn bright red.

Only had it for a few weeks...and it is a slug and snail magnet. If i had known it will die with no pups..might not have bought it.

Neutral palmbob On Jan 18, 2012, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Very attractive and interesting plant, but leaf color looses a lot of its variegation when grown in full sun. Also, I have had a lot more problems keeping this plant happy than the normal version of K luciae. Leaves are not flat as in normal version, and are wavy, irregular and prone to rot, brown-tipping. Flowers are identical to normal form of K luciae. Monocarpic, though unlike K luciae, this form does not seem to sucker much, so flowering is usually the permanent end of the plant.
