Kalanchoe luciae - flapjack

In their natural habitat, Kalanchoe luciae plants are sometimes exposed to harsh temperatures and over many years have adapted to survive. Besides being succulent, the erect leaves are pointed upwards towards the sun in order to minimise the surface area that is exposed to the sun, thus assisting the plant to conserve moisture.

Caring for kalanchoe flapjack

1) Kalanchoe luciae succulents require soil with good drainage to grow. If you cannot provide partial shade for the plant, exposing it to direct sunlight will cause sunburn.

2) If the kalanchoe gets the needed amount of sunlight, its leaves will have a rich red appearance.

3) Kalanchoe luciae is a monocarpic plant. This means that the parent succulent will dry up and die after flowering.

4) Kalanchoe luciae is a drought-tolerant plant, so it can survive for a long time without water. The best watering technique for the Flapjack plant is the “soak and dry” method that involves allowing the soil to dry out totally before resuming watering.

5) Propagated by offsets or leaf cuttings
