Kalenchoe

Kalanchoe is a genus of about 125 species of tropical, succulent flowering plants in the family Crassulaceae, mainly native to the Old World. Only one species of this genus originates from the Americas, 56 from southern & eastern Africa and 60 species in Madagascar. It is also found in south-eastern Asia until China.

These plants are cultivated as ornamental houseplants and rock or succulent garden plants.They are popular because of their ease of propagation, low water requirements, and wide variety of flower colors typically borne in clusters.

Please bring any Kalanchoes you may be growing for show and tell.
