Kalanchoes are a diverse group of succulent plants. Many are grown for their foliage, while others are primarily blooming plants. All need bright light and should be kept on the dry side except when in bloom. Room temperature is good through the growing season, but grow them cool (45-65 degrees F) during winter.
