  1. Bright and cheerful to go with my coffee!

    This is a mighty fancy Kalanchoe. I almost never seen anything but grocery-store pinks and reds. I should get out more!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      It is a very large genus from fuzzy to smooth. This one is like a little fuzzy bear. 🙂 The big box stores here often carry a selection of young starts like this one. They are easily propagated from a single leaf stuck in sand and often dropped leaves will root on their own.

  3. Very cool shot! Its flower is the same as my so-called Holiday cactus which is once again in bloom.

  4. Alice says:

    That is exceptionally pretty…so many buds…very happy to be cared by you!

  5. Treah Pichette says:

    Ooo…luscious, little wax candies!

  6. Anne says:

    This is beautiful: the shapes as well as the colour cobinations.

  7. I so love the colors, the orange and the green. Striking!

  8. That is a pretty one and a great overhead view. The variety in Kalanchoes amazing.

  9. I also thought this one looked different from the ones I usually see. A great winter bloomer.

  10. The red-orange certainly jumps out at you.

  11. John says:

    What is that, it’s beautiful! ❤️☺️

  12. Debbie says:

    I used to have kalanchoe; it grew outdoors when I lived in Texas. Such a pretty plant — and so easy to grow.

  13. Dale says:

    Wow! That is gorgeous. I’ve never seen this.

  14. Flowerpoet says:

    How beautiful! It’s so different from the ones I’ve either seen or sold in flower shops and grocery stores before. I have a yellow one on the windowsill here at home. It bloomed its little heart out for a long time, a small mass of yellow, and now sits like retired me now. 💛💕✨

  15. Pepper says:

    This is beautiful and looks different from mine. 😊

  16. arlingwoman says:

    That is gorgeous. At first I thought it was a jade plant. Last month, I saw a big jade tree in bloom in a greenhouse. I had not known they did that….

  17. Kris P says:

    It’s a beauty!

  18. Cathy says:

    What a beauty! 😃

  19. susurrus says:

    Another great picture with lovely colours. I like how you’ve got a great depth of field so we can see the buds with a nicely blurred background. It sounds easy, but it isn’t at that distance.

  20. Vicki says:

    What a beautiful Kalanchoe (and lovely photo also).

    I think you’ve just given me the answer to one of my unidentified flower images from the Royal Botanic Gardens here in Melbourne. I’m now going to re-Google my query with ‘Kalanchoe’ in the search. I never would have thought your image was of the Kalanchoe family.

  21. Harshi says:

    So pretty! Great shot!

  22. I instantly said WOW! What details and the colors are so vibrant!

  23. For years I mistook our Sedums for Kalanchoes. These are beauties.

  24. Val Boyko says:

    Now that is dreamy 💓

  25. They look so fuzzy! Orange and green is an unusual, striking combination.

  26. A very attractive little plant!

  27. Such a pretty plant. I like the orange-green combo, and the pinkish tinge along the leaves adds a lovely little touch.

  28. I like the plant and the photo’s angle and color story. I used to get these in NJ at a place called Produce Junction … cheap flowers, plants and bulk produce. Do you have them where you live? I miss that place.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Denise. Must be a local NJ chain. I sometimes check out Home Depot to ‘rescue’ a plant or two. They don’t last long there as they are sadly neglected.
