Orders placed between Monday and Thursday at noon, will ship
the following Monday.
Orders placed Friday - Sunday

If you are experiencing freezing temperatures, please let us know.
We can hold your order until it is a better time to ship.

We remove soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are no issues
with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. Take them out of the box and put into
a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: In winter, wait
a few days so the roots start reaching down for water.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

We take photos of our plants to show you what they look like. We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be
one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at different paces and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Kalanchoe Kalanchoe ‘Houghton’s Hybrid’
Kalanchoe 'Pink Butterflies'

DROUGHT TOLERANT when established. This is an incredibly colorful variegated form of an old hybrid that was hard to track down its heritage. The original hybrid was known as ‘Houghton’s Hybrid’, and was a cross between K. diagremontiana and K. delagoensis (a.k.a. K. tubiflora). At some point a variegated sport of this hybrid appeared and ‘Pink Butterflies’ came to be. ‘Pink Butterflies’ is not only uniquely colored but also has an advantage over the original cross. Both parents of the original hybrid are “viviparous”, producing hundreds of tiny plantlets on their leaves that readily fall from the parents and take root with little to no effort. While a novel, and interesting aspect of these plants, (and a great way to get more plants) they can become somewhat of a nuisance if you like a neat, tidy, orderly fashion to your garden or containers. ‘Pink Butterflies’ still produces copious quantities of tiny pink butterfly-like plantlets on its leaves but something in the mutation to a variegate form has taken away the ability for them to root – sometimes a couple might take but in general no. It can still be propagated from cuttings just fine. The brighter the light or sun exposure, the more intense the colors become! Provide a porous soil with adequate drainage, water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, and protect from frost.
