Is this a Kalanchoe?
I think the leaves and flower stem look like it, it's a small plant in a 3 inch pot. The owners of the nursery did NOT think it was, but all they could say was that it IS a succulent - DUH!!! touched

Yes Lynne. I think it is a kalanchoe. I have several and they all look like that.

I think its about 7 years old.It's been divided in half before and re potted.The other half went to neighbor& I stuck some of the cuttings in a few different pots.I killed what cuttings we're growing with the ponytail palm.I forgot to get it covered one night,yet the green jew vine returned.My peachy one is about yours size,but yours are 'leaf E eer.'Addie has not been able to get blooms from hers.her plant or the half of mine she got last fall.

Is there such a thing as a Christmas version which only blooms if you cover it for 8 weeks prior to Christmas? Am I confused?

inorder to get them to bloom you do have to give them a specific amount of light for about 3 months. It is either 14 or 10 hours of sunlight a day until they begin to bloom.

Hi beginner, that happened to the mother plant of the one I have this year. I think I let it dry out to much. Mine are in a cactus soil and I think I went to long between waterings. I was lucky that I had one little rootlet from the mother that has grown into the plant I have now.

And about the plant I have now. It has a few branches but for the most part grew up a central stock. After it blooms should I top it and maybe remove a few mature leaves along the central stem to promote a bushier plant?

Dodge, I love that color of yellow. Mine, that I just repotted, is a real pretty purple. I would like to have some of your yellow if its not too much trouble, I think it would go great with my purple one. Thanks.

Your talking of the Kolanchoe on that photo?

They root easily from cuttings.. I may have a cutting of one going now.. It is the only Kolanchoe that would grow well for me........
Give me your address and I will see if I can get you one out in the mail about Monday.
