Some species contain toxins that can cause cardiac poisoning in grazing animals, while it has also been used in traditional herbal medicine to treat infections, rheumatism and inflammation.

Available Colours/Varieties

Are Kalanchoes edible?

They are beautiful and happy, but not edible.

Can I keep a Kalanchoe outside?

You can definitely keep your Kalanchoe outside but not too early in the year. Wait until about mid-May and cover it at night for the first few nights to harden it off. Bring it inside before the first night frosts.

The blooms are wilting, what is the problem?

Most potted flowering plants prefer moist but well-drained soil. If the soil gets too dry the blooms can wilt and they may not recover. Check the soil moisture with your finger – if the top 2-4″ of soil is dry, or plants are wilted, it is time to water.
