Kalanchoe luciae

Often mistaken as Kalanchoe thyrsiflora, this plant is now known to be the closely related Kalanchoe luciae (the true thyrsiflora does not blush with the lovely rose tones). Kalanchoe luciae has pale aqua, rounded to oval leaves that grow to 6" diameter. These leaves are highly pruinose (densely covered with white powder which protects from excess light) and blush red on the margins. The color is especially intense in the cooler winter months, and the blush extends to cover nearly all of the leaf. The leaves emerge from a basal central point, like stacked "platters" giving the plant a very dramatic architectural form. Native to South Africa. Produces small flowers atop a tall stalk, after which that particular stem will die. To encourage the formation of new young plants at the base, cut the emerging flower stalk before flowering begins. Porous soil with ample airflow. Prefers bright light or filtered sun. Drench completely when soil is dry.Can tolerate heat, and bright light. Protect from frost. When placed in full sun the leaves very quickly turn very red. The photo you see is of plants that are in the greenhouse where they under approximately 50% shade.
