Kalanchoe Humilis (Kalanchoe humilis) is an extremely popular choice for creating a statement in the pot or garden. The bold maroon markings against pale green leaves makes it a show stopper! Very easy to grow making it pefrect for the beginner, this variety shows off better colouring in a more sunny position, but will cope with a more shaded position if need be.
Super easy to grow and care for, Succulents require a gritty free draining potting mix or soil and minimal water. Kalanchoe are versatile and will tolerate a fair bit of shade; requires a fairly bright indirect light position for best colouration and requires a position free from frost.
