Kalanchoe humilis Overview

Kalanchoe humilis is an attractive succulent shrub species from the Crassulaceae family. It may be grown as an interesting houseplant for the scallop edged, purple marked, succulent leaves. The leaves may develop redder colouring when grown under strong sunlight. Water sparingly. It can produce yellow, fragrant tubular flowers on panicles in early spring, but in cultivation it rarely flowers. As such, this plant is primarily grown for its succulent foliage in homes or offices.
