I got this plant as a present, but I have no idea which one it is. So, I am not sure how to properly take care of it. I would really appreciate some help.

I know this must look like a begonia but it is a kalanchoe. I have had two master gardeners verify this plant and the official name for it is; Kalanchoe blossfeldiana - double form and the common name is Flaming Katy. (there is more than one Kalanchoe Flaming Katy).


Here are a couple of links with photos. Wait a few seconds for the single photo to appear.

What is this plant? A friend gave it to me and she doesn't know what its name is. Is it a house plant or outdoor or just a potted plant?

Pretty young specimen but I believe it is in the Kalanchoe family of plants and may be Kalanchoe millotii.


  • These are very easy plants to grow and easy tp propagate so you can have several new plants in no time.
  • These plants do not need a lot of light, just a little fertilizer once in a while and can go through dry spells but should be watered at least once per month but must have good drainage.
  • Here is a site for care instructions.

Kalanchoe is an extremely popular houseplant and is utterly dangerous for pets including cats.

This is a kalanchoe plant :) Here are some care tips

  • Kalanchoe plants need plenty of sun to survive. Place it in a south-facing window during the winter and in an east or west window for bright indirect sunlight in the summer. But be careful, too much sun is not good.

  • It is a succulent so keep it in temps above 50F.
  • It only needs water weekly, but when you do water it, water the plant deeply.
  • When it starts to bloom, keep dead stalks cut.
