Kalanchoe marmorata

Native to Africa, Kalanchoe marmorata (penwiper) is a species of flowering plant in the family

It is a beautiful glabrous succulent herb that can grow up to 120 cm into the wild. It is named for its highly coloured leaves with brownish-purple blotches, which look a little like blotting paper. The erect inflorescences grow up to 10 cm in length and bear delicate starry white, four-petalled
The flowers are borne in clumps (cyme) over 5 cm in spread, 10-30 cm long.
Starry white, four-petalled, sometimes tinged with pink.
Blooming season: Blooms profusely from the end of winter to early spring..
Remarks: The Kalanchoes are short-day plants, they only bloom when they have less than 12 hours of light per day.

Cultivation and Propagation: This is a very easy to grow plant. It needs a fast-draining mix, keep it were is bright, sunny, warm and airy, but protect from the mid-day summer sun, water well during summer with dry periods between watering, during winter keep them rather dry, not completely. The leaves become redder with the cool nights of the winter but will need protection from the cold during hard freezes
