Kalachoe Rest Period

bigwestwindow added on May 7, 2018 | Answered

your article on blooming kalanchoes says that they require a rest period. How long should this be? Also, I understood K's can tolerate some direct sunlight? y/n Should I wait until most of the blooms have died off b/f pruning back flowering stems? TKU R. Linnett

The rest period will be decreased watering, and slightly drier temperatures. They may not go dormant completely, but they will slow down in growth, significantly.

It is best to let the blooms fade before pruning, but most can handle pruning at just about any time.

Some varieties can handle full sun, and some cannot. Can you provide a photo? Is this a succulent variety, or the plant-like variety?
