Kalanchoe daigremontiana bloom

I was very impressed with this K daigremontiana (aka Devils Backbone) bloom in my greenhouse this past winter. I'd never seen a pic of one before and was very happy to see it in person. Thought you might enjoy it too.

That is very nice! I'm a fan of K. flowers. Hablu

RE: Kalanchoe daigremontiana bloom

That is an interesting pink, and I like the way the flowers are on different levels. Your picture surprised me because mine produces red flowers. Some people hate this plant because you end up finding its babies everywhere, but I am so fond of it that I have been gathering up all the babies and putting them in one big pot, hoping for a spectacular show come November.
I like Kal. tubiflora (or Bryophyllum tubiflorum) even more, as its flowers are reddish orange. Its leaves are different, too--cylindrical, with babies forming at the tips. I also have a big pot of that started, but it wasn't so prolific this year as the daigremontiana.

Do you have any blooming advise? Does it react to light cycles in a similar way to other Kalanchoe?
