Kalanchoe Seeds

hi all,

I have a kalanchoe plant that has many dried flowerheads..

I looked inside and they are three tiny pods which have very small seeds (I think!).

They are fine as that really the seed? And how does one grow them??

Probably - all the plants in this plant family (Crassulaceae) have dust-like seeds. Other memebrs of this plant family include Jade Plant, Echeveria, Sempervivum and Sedum.

RE: Kalanchoe Seeds

Yes, those are the seeds. They can be put directly into any seedling or potting mix. Keep them warm and moist and you should get a ton of seedlings. You can sift them out of the flower fras, but they seem to do ok with some of it still left in the mix. A trick my teacher tought me with such small seeds is to mix them with a little pearlite or vermiculite and then sprinkle the mixture on top of the soil so you get a somewhat even dispersion.
