The Kalanchoe daigremontiana (also known as Bryophyllum) is a plant of the Crassulaceae family, native of the large island of Madagascar. The plant has juicy and fleshy oblong-lanceolate leaves. It has an upright trunk, and, with time, it starts to become woody from the bottom.
This plant does need good drainage and is best potted in a commercial cactus soil mix. If using standard potting soil, sand can be added for sharper drainage. When learning how to grow Kalanchoe indoors, locate the plant in bright, but indirect light for several hours per day.
