Kalanchoe pumilla

Kalanchoe Pumilla is also known as the Flower Dust Plant. This succulent is native to Madagascar and is obovate shaped. Belonging to the family of Crassulaceae, you will see the plant becoming dormant in winter. It can grow up to 12 inches tall and has fleshy leaves.

Growth Rate

The growth rate of the plant is extremely slow and it can take about a year for the succulent to reach a height of 8 inches. 


Be ready to be showered with colorful and long-lasting flowers during the winter and spring seasons. These flowers are pink-violet.

Watering and Feeding

From fall to winter, watering should be moderate. Reduce watering in summers. Use liquid fertilizer to feed bi-weekly only during the season of growth. 


Not much effort is needed to prepare the soil mix. Arrange a potting soil mix and you are good to grow your Kalanchae Pumilla.


Kalanchoe Pumilla is extremely winter hardy and can survive zones 9a through 11b. If the succulent is kept at a temperature of 12° C (54° F), it will experience the most wholesome growth ever. Remember its frost tolerance of 3.9° C (25° F). 


If you plant the succulent outdoors, plant it in an area that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight. Place the container next to a Southern facing window in a room with ample sunlight access if you are growing the plant indoors. 


The highest success rate of propagation is through stem cuttings. Use a sterile knife or scissors when you take out the stem from the main plant. 

The Flower Dust Plant has an unsaid gift of stealing your heart from the very first moment that it meets the eye. Beware of its stunning and attractive looks!
