IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
CHECK Dormancy TableTO SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT

We generally ship Orders placed between Monday and Thursday at noon, the following Monday. When possible, we ship on Wednesdays.
We don't want orders to sit over the weekend.

West coast orders may be shipped on other days

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

Regards watering: give
the roots opportunity to start reaching down for water. Check to see if the plant should be watered at that time of the year you purchase. Some don't get water in winter and some no water in summer.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

The photos on our website represent what plants will 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 a different pace 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 luciae

Often mistaken as Kalanchoe thyrsiflora, this plant is now known to be the closely related Kalanchoe luciae (the true thyrsiflora does not blush with the lovely rose tones). Kalanchoe luciae has pale aqua, rounded to oval leaves that grow to 6" diameter. These leaves are highly pruinose (densely covered with white powder which protects from excess light) and blush red on the margins. The color is especially intense in the cooler winter months, and the blush extends to cover nearly all of the leaf. The leaves emerge from a basal central point, like stacked "platters" giving the plant a very dramatic architectural form. Native to South Africa. Produces small flowers atop a tall stalk, after which that particular stem will die. To encourage the formation of new young plants at the base, cut the emerging flower stalk before flowering begins. Porous soil with ample airflow. Prefers bright light or filtered sun. Drench completely when soil is dry.Can tolerate heat, and bright light. Protect from frost. When placed in full sun the leaves very quickly turn very red. The photo you see is of plants that are in the greenhouse where they under approximately 50% shade.
