    • Pearl Bell Kalanchoes should not be watered too often and don’t care for direct sun or too much light, they actually prefer medium indirect lighting.
      Pearl Bells is in the madagascar family of succulents, and their foliage stores water. Feed kalanchoes fish emulsions once a month, add a half teaspoon
      with one cup of water. Also make sure soil for kalanchoes is a succulent soil it must be well drained. Kalanchoes tends to bloom when day light is shorten,
      such as winter season. Also many people don’t realize the stale air in homes keeps plants and succulents from thriving, try to use a small fan to circulate the
      air above the plant. The length of daylight should equal the length of darkness to encourage blooming. Always pinch off blooms once blooms die. I hope this information will help you.
