Kalanchoe beharensis, commonly called Felt Bush or Elephant's Ear Kalanchoe, is a native to Madagascar. The leaves are covered with felt-like soft hairs, arrowhead-shaped, irregularly lobed and colour changes from olive green to rusty brown as it matures.
Light: Place the plant in a well-ventilated area whereby it can receive around 4-6 hours of bright but indirect light.
Water: Kalanchoes do not like their potting substrates to be kept too wet nor too dry. Water the plant thoroughly till excess water drains out of the pot. Let the soil dry out before the next watering.
Temperature: Plant tolerates temperature between 16-30°C.
Fertilizer: To boost plant's overall health, feed it with a diluted concentration of water-soluble, balanced fertilizer that contains equal amount of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (e.g. N-P-K: 15-15-15) once every two weeks. Otherwise, a slow-release fertilizer (e.g. Osmocote) can be incorporated into the potting media, and to be replenished after about 2-3 months. Do follow the recommended dosage indicated on the fertilizer’s application instructions.
