Kalanchoe synsepala 'Gremlin' - walking kalanchoeDESCRIPTION: Large, bright green succulent with semi-folded pairs of big toothed leaves rimmed in maroon and blushed this colour on the backs. Mature plants may produce deep red flowers on long thin stems.
USE IN: Great for rockeries, pots and indoors in bright light but not too much hot sun. Hardy and drought tolerant once established.
LOCATION: Plant in free-draining gritty soil in bright light. Prodduces long stems with baby plants at the end, which root away from the parent - hence the common name of walking kalanchoe.
CARE: Water sparingly when the soil is dry to touch, and reduce watering in winter when temperatures drop. Feed in the growing seasons with slow release food for container plants.
