Hello,

Thank you for sending us your gardening question. Pruning is necessary to keep the Kalanchoe well shaped. Trim spent blooms and their stems as needed. Leaving spent blooms attached will inhibit future blooming. To make the Kalanchoe a fuller, stockier plant, pinch the top back to the second or third leaf; this will encourages branching. After pruning the plant may require less water.
