Lavender Scallops

From: Flowers & Plants Co.

The Kalanchoe/Bryophyllum Fedtschenckoi plant honours the late botanist Boris Fedtschenckoi but is more commonly known as Lavender Scallops. Identifiable from their unusual shapes and pinkish hue on the fringe of their compact foliage. Its perennial succulent with upright flowering stems which bloom into beautiful large flowers. Light and Water It’s a relatively easy succulent to grow as a houseplant with one need. The plant needs lots of strong sunlight (preferably full sun), whether grown indoors or outside, especially during the summer. So, place in a bright room with filtered light and ample airflow. When repotting, provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Water the plant infrequently. It’s easy to overwater this plant. Allow the soil to dry out between watering. As with all succulents, never let them sit in water and do not water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods. Feeding helps encourage thicker, healthier growth. Feed the plant bi-weekly with a liquid fertilizer throughout the summer months. During the winter, stop feeding the plant. The plant also requires less water during the winter.
