About Dragonfire Kalanchoe

Plants in the Kalanchoe genus are native to Madagascar and tropical Africa. They range from rubbery green leaves, to leopard print, and some are even fuzzy! The word Kalanchoe comes from the Cantonese name for these plants, pronounced Ka-lun-koh-ee in English. Their succulent leaves help store water during droughts, so they'll be just fine if you skip a watering or two (it happens!).

The leaves roots and flowers are poisonous to cats and dogs. The flowers are most poisonous. So keep away from pets. Otherwise, as long as it gets lots of sun this fella can handle almost anything! (Try to keep warm during winter months if you live someplace cold, bring them in)
