Central Phoenix -- My Kalanchoe beharensis Fang outgrew its pot this year. In that pot it came indoors in winter. I planted it into a much larger outdoor pot with Pedilanthus macrocarpa. Fang had no damage from 26 F in December, but had a cover on the leaf head (but not stem). My plant was formerly in deep citrus shade where it became quite elongated and now is in deciduous tree shade. It gets watered about once every other week.
