Kalanchoe 'Pearl Bells'

You can find this post here on my new site for the full post and to leave comments.

This most recent succulent was a gift. It's a Kalanchoe 'Pearl Bells' and my first Kalanchoe. I can't say I've ever been seriously tempted by a Kalanchoe before and I'm not generally one to buy a plant for the flowers but I'm not one to turn down a free plant so here we are.

It's nice enough I guess. It'll take a lot from it to make it a favourite of mine though. The leaves are boring but the flowers are a nice colour and it looks like it should keep flowering for a while from the size of some of the buds so that's a plus. Wonder how easy it'll be to re-bloom though?


  1. I really like the flowers. I hate plant gifts. I barely have enough space as it is. I want to choose my plants! Of course I can never get rid of them. If I really don't want them I just kind of neglect them. But they never die. Not the gift plants that were meh that you never wanted in the first place. Acapella by Kelis is a great song! I'm listening to it now so that's not completely random...

  2. At least it's small. Right now it's only in a 2" pot.

    I'm not sure if you can kill a Kalanchoe with neglect... that's a definite plus with this plant.
