    • Not sure where you are located, but check out peppers greenhouses on line. They are in Milton Delaware and have a lot of these plants.

  1. I bought a Kalanchoe last summer, it bloomed nicely for awhile, then lovely foliage. Now it has what appear to be long streamers. Leafless “tendrils”, that follow the sun. Seems a bit odd, but interesting. No more flowers, just the long “tendrils”. I am curious, is this normal? Is it a different “type”? Thank you for any answer.

  2. This happened to mine! My Kalanchoe lost all its flower and started growing long stems, without getting big broad leaves. I though my plant had died! Fortunately, since its roots were good, those stems started growing small leaves later on and after a year of no flowers, I finally have a bunch! If you do not want to wait it out, I have tried cutting stems with white roots coming out of them and planting them separately. Those have grown flowers really quickly.
