Kalanchoe pinnata

(Syn.: Bryophyllum pinnatum), Life Plant, Chandelier Plant, Hawaiian Air Plant, Oliwa Ku Kahakai



Kalanchoe pinnata

$9.95  

This succulent plant is often sold to Hawaiian tourists as a souvenir oddity because of its ability to grow small plantlets on its leaf margins, even if just pinned to a curtain in the air. Clustered greenish white to reddish flowers dangle from the flower stalk, as on a chandelier. Fast growing, drought tolerant 2 to 3 feet high. Tolerates almost any conditions, sun or shade, but likes moisture with good drainage. Easy popular house plant. Can also be grown outdoors in mild climates (no frost), but can be invasive in the tropics. Has many tribal and herbal medicinal uses. Naturalized in the Hawaiian Islands, but probably native to Madagascar. Crassulaceae

Kalanchoe porphyrocalyx

(Syn.: Bryophyllum porphyrocalyx), Pearl Bells Kalanchoe



Kalanchoe porphyrocalyx

$11.95  

Pearl Bells is a compact, bushy succulent growing up to 8 inches high with slender leaves that are rubbery and irregularly notched. It's very showy with clusters of nodding reddish urn-shaped flowers with creamy colored tips on slender purple-tinted stems. Blooms heavily during the shorter days of late winter for about 7 weeks. Give it bright light or morning sun, well-drained soil, and protection from frost. Allow to dry between waterings. It grows on the ground or up in the trees as an epiphyte in the rainforest areas of central and northeastern Madagascar. Similar to and often confused with Kalanchoe 'Wendy' and 'Lucky Bells'. Crassulaceae

Kalanchoe prolifera

(Syn.: Bryophyllum proliferum), Blooming Boxes, Tree Kalanchoe



Kalanchoe prolifera

$9.95  

This interesting giant succulent from Madagascar grows 6 to 9 feet tall with its unbranched 1½ inch thick jointed stems holding opposite pairs of fleshy green pinnately compound leaves. Fairly fast growing with flowers appearing after a couple of years that have greenish yellow box shaped bracts and greenish orange flowers in late winter. Later these yield numerous plantlets on the flower stalks. Plant in light shade. Drought resistant and can take a mild frost of short duration. Under certain conditions it might be somewhat invasive because of its prolific production of plantlets. Crassulaceae

Kalanchoe schizophylla

(Syn.: Bryophyllum schizophyllum)



Kalanchoe schizophylla

$11.95  

New! This is a very curious kalanchoe, as it is one of the few climbing species along with Kalanchoe beauverdii. Its smooth leaves are deeply cut with a fern-like appearance turning orangish in bright light. It climbs by means of its hook-like finely divided mature leaves. The stems are thin curling up to 12 feet or more in length. The seldom seen inflorescence consists of pendulous, bell-shaped lavender-grey flowers in spring to summer. It seems to be given to vegetative growth so that flowering is rare, especially if frequent pruning has been necessary. The variable leaves are very decorative and the plants are easy to grow. In its native Madagascar it is a hemiepiphyte (seedlings growing in the canopy as an epiphyte, later with roots growing down into the ground). It is found in rocky and shady brush in central Madagascar from 3 to 5 thousand feet in elevation. All parts are toxic, a rarity in the family Crassulaceae. Give it bright shade with extra humidity, well-drained potting soil and water sparingly. Grow it as an epiphyte, in a hanging basket, or as an interesting climber on a trellis. Intolerant of frost. Crassulaceae
