Kalanchoe from Seeds

Posted by davemichigan zone 6a SE Michig (My Page) on

A while ago I brushed the flowers of my kalachoe plants with a soft brush to pollinate them. Now I think I got some seed pods.

I am wondering if anyone has started kalanchoe from seeds. Is this a plant that will bloom in a year from seed? Or is this one of the kinds that will take several years?

Thanks in advance.

RE: Kalanchoe from Seeds

IF the seed is viable then you be able to propagate this plant from seed.
do not cover the seed as light required for germination. soil temperature for germination 70-75F & takes 7-30 days to germinate. Growing on temperature 60F & takes 4-8 weeksfrom germination to be large enough to transplant.
