The composition of the soil should include the following components:

  • Leafy ground.
  • Sand.
  • Turf.
  • Humus.

The ratio of these ingredients should be 1: 1: 1: 1, and drainage should be done in the lower part of the pot, the thickness of which should be at least 2 cm.

Correct planting and watering of the plant

Thanks to this, after separation from the main bush of the cuttings and proper care of the Kalanchoe, it can begin to bloom in a year. As for transplanting, for young plants this should be done annually, feeding the soil with useful fertilizers. When the Kalanchoe is already 4 years old, the plant can be transplanted 1 time in 3 years, using a pot of suitable size for this. There are no difficulties with how to transplant the Kalanchoe after the purchase, since it is simply buried at the level of the horse’s neck into the ground, not very deep.

Given the tropical origin of this flower, watering should not be very frequent, since otherwise there is a risk of disease damage, as well as rotting of the plant. Usually watering is done once every 12-14 days, when the soil becomes really very dry, however, in the summer period, watering can be done once every 7-8 days. Leaves are a good indicator here, moreover, when they droop strongly, this is the first sign of excessive watering..

It is best to keep the flower pot away from the midday sun during the summer period, and closer to daylight or provide artificial lighting in winter. A window sill in a room facing south is best suited here, but do not forget that the Mini Mix Kalanchoe grows best when the daylight hours for it are about 10 hours.
