Kalanchoe luciae. Aka Paddle Plant, Flapjack. This Kalanchoe is a stunner with paddle shaped, big flat, thick leaves arranged in rosettes that colour from grey green to red. With maximum sunshine and cold weather it turns a stunning, bruised red. We have paired this succulent with a matte black, glazed ceramic planter (12cm x 12.5cm h) to contrast the green and red powdery hues. The powdery coating is the plants own sunscreen and is a textural feature of this plant. You will receive a plant that is similar in size to this one but colour may vary depending on time of year purchased.
Water deeply so that the water drains through the hole at base and allow soil to dry out almost completely between waterings. The plant will then draw the water up through its roots and store in its leaves. It is better to underwater than overwater as overwatering can lead to root/stem rot. Too much water and you will notice leaves become transparent and turn mushy, may rot and eventually die. Underwatering will lead to puckered leaves but can be restored with watering.
