Tips for outside
Do you know the best way to care for your Kalanchoe outdoors? We are happy to share these care tips with you so you can enjoy your Kalanchoe for months and months in your garden or on your balcony.
Can I keep my plants in the same pot outdoors, or will I have to transplant them?
Put your Kalanchoë in a large pot or container along with other Kalanchoës somewhere on the veranda, the patio or in the garden. You could also plant your Kalanchoë in the garden soil but wait to do this until the ground is no longer frozen. To be sure of this, it would be best to wait until the middle of May.
Can I place my Kalanchoë in the sun?
Absolutely! The best location will be one that receives a lot of light. The Kalanchoë will thrive even in direct sunlight.
What does my Kalanchoë need in the way of water and extra fertiliser?
It will produce even more flowers outdoors than indoors. And it doesn’t need a lot of water either: a moderately moist soil is perfect. Giving it a little fertiliser every month will be sufficient.
What should I do with the Kalanchoë's faded flowers?
The faded flowers do not have to be removed.
It's nice and warm during the day but it's still pretty cold at night. What should I do with my Kalanchoës on the patio?
In early spring, bring the plants indoors if it will get down to below 10 degrees at night. Starting in the middle of May, you can be sure that they can just be left outside at night. Just be sure to bring them indoors before the first ground frost so you can simply continue to enjoy them!
