Help with Kalanchoe

Posted by osanwo (My Page) on

Bought this K.Blossfeldiana about 6 mths ago and it started off doing pretty well but has been steadily declining 2 mths ago.
The leaves are turning yellow then brown and I have to remove quite a lot of them. New leaves do not look very healthy as well. It's placed in an area with indirect sunlight and watered about once a week.

Any ideas as to what might be the cause? Thanks.

I don't grow these but I would pull it out of the pot and look at the roots. If there is rot remove it down to healthy tissue.
Then repot in fresh soil and water sparingly and keep out of direct sun for awhile. If the root are ok, repot it in new soil and keep an eye on it. The picture you have shared looks like may be an over watering issue. Hope this helps
good luck!

thats far too much water and not enough light.

RE: Help with Kalanchoe

I can grow these under lights (about 30 %) of the day time bright to direct sun light they can handle when growin out side
Anytime I want yellowing leaves like yours all I have to do is turn off the fans for a couple days and let the heat from the lamps pound heat onto them.
Yes they like full sun but they also also like full air with the usuall drink now tnd then.

Why would you want yellowing leaves?
