Plant Bio

Kalanchoe Thyrsiflora 

Native to South Africa, Paddle Plant goes by lots of other names, including Flapjacks (because the leaves are pancake shaped). In addition to its big leaves, this succulent blooms with a spike of greenish-yellow flowers that tower above the mound of foliage. 
Like most other cacti and succulents, Paddle Plant does best with a lot of light. Lots and lots of light. Ideally, keep it within 1 to 3 feet of a large, unobstructed south- or west-facing window (or the equivalent from plant lights). It likes average household temperatures and tolerates low humidity levels. Water it as the three-quarters or so of the potting mix dries to the touch. Avoid overwatering and keep it away from hot or cold drafts. Acclimate it to the sun prior to growing it outdoors if you wish to enjoy it outside. This will prevent unsightly sunburn.
Note: This plant may have some natural degree of toxicity and may cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Additionally, exposure to the sap of this plant may cause discomfort to individuals with a sensitivity to it upon contact. It is grown for ornamental purposes and not intended for human or animal consumption.
