I never seem to have enough potted plants in the house but with this weekly project I believe I will have a nice collection of them after a few more months. This week I added a new plant to the collection – Kalanchoe. A lovely 6″ pot of tri-coloured flowery goodness, two shades of pink with a bright cheery yellow.
When it comes to vases I have a wonderful collection that I love to add to, but when it comes to larger vessels for potted plants I am lacking. I must work on that.
To pretty up the boring green growers pot I found a simple pink fabric in my stash and covered the pot in it. Then I simply inserted the covered pot into a black, glazed planter and adjusted the fabric so it hangs nicely. A quick and easy way to dress up a potted plant and hide the not so pretty green pot.
Kalanchoe is a flowering succulent and a very easy plant to grow. Keep it in a bright exposure, partial light will do but re-flowering may not occur. These plants do not require a lot of water; allow the soil to dry out in between waterings.
