Kalanchoe millotii, commonly known as Velvet Leaf Kalanchoe, is a unique succulent plant with fuzzy, silver-gray leaves.

how to grow and care for Kalanchoe millotii:

  1. Light requirements: Kalanchoe millotii thrives in bright, indirect light. Place it in a location that receives several hours of indirect sunlight per day. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, especially in the morning or late afternoon, but avoid exposing it to intense, midday sun for extended periods. Inadequate light may cause the leaves to lose their vibrant color.
  2. Temperature: Kalanchoe millotii prefers moderate temperatures between 60°F and 75°F (15°C to 24°C). Protect it from extreme heat or cold conditions, as it is sensitive to temperature fluctuations. Avoid placing it in drafty areas or near heating or cooling vents.
  3. Watering: Kalanchoe millotii has low water needs. Allow the soil to dry out partially between waterings, and then water thoroughly. In general, water it about once every 1-2 weeks, or when the top inch of soil feels dry. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot. During the winter, reduce watering frequency as the plant enters a period of dormancy.
  4. Soil: Kalanchoe millotii prefers well-draining soil. Use a cactus and succulent potting mix or create a mixture of regular potting soil, perlite, and coarse sand. Good drainage is crucial to prevent waterlogged soil.
  5. Fertilizer: Kalanchoe millotii benefits from occasional fertilization. Feed it with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-4 weeks during the active growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or stop fertilizing during the winter months when the plant is dormant.
  6. Propagation: Kalanchoe millotii can be propagated through stem cuttings or leaf cuttings. Take stem cuttings or leaf cuttings from healthy, mature plants and allow them to callous over for a day or two before planting them in well-draining soil. Keep the soil lightly moist until the cuttings develop roots.
  7. Pruning: Pruning is generally not necessary for Kalanchoe millotii. However, you can trim back any leggy growth or remove dead or dried-up leaves to maintain a neat appearance. Use clean, sharp scissors or pruning shears for pruning.
  8. Pests and diseases: Kalanchoe millotii is generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, it can occasionally be susceptible to common succulent pests such as mealybugs or scale insects. Inspect the plant regularly and treat any infestations promptly with appropriate pesticides or a solution of water and mild soap.

Kalanchoe millotii is a beautiful succulent with its unique fuzzy leaves. With proper care and attention to its specific needs, it will thrive and add a touch of elegance to your space. Enjoy the velvety texture and stunning foliage of this unique succulent plant.
