Plant Question

When my MIL passed away we inherited her houseplants. They were looking a little shabby but how that they’ve had regular watering and some fertilizer they’re looking better. My question is this. What kind of plant is that in the photo? I tried to get a photo showing both the leaves and the flower. It seems happy enough where it’s located but knowing the name would let me know if I’m doing what is best for it. Thanks!

  1. It’s a Kalanchoe or Flaming Katy. Abundant at this time of year.

    Kalanchoe. It is in the succulent family. It may get leggy if it isn’t in bright light, but fear not, It will be happy outside on the porch when the weather is warm. It should be in well-draining soil because it doesn’t like to get too soggy. If you snip it back, the cuttings will quickly root. YAY!

    You can download a plant recognition app like PlantSnap onto your smartphone and upload a photo of your plant. It will tell you what plant it is. Accurate at least 80% of the time.

    Beautiful plant. I so enjoy your plant chats .. may I ask those that know this plant if it is considered easy keeper. Since I am not a green thumb person would I be able to keep it? It is lovely.

  6. It’s known as a Schlumbergera or Christmas Cactus here. I have a couple, one of which is going absolutely bonkers at the moment.

  7. Can you take it to a nursery to confirm what it is? It looks allt like the African violets my grandmother used to grow, but I don’t know for certain from this photo.

  8. Oh, sorry to heat about the passing of your MIL. Nice of you to take care of her plants. I think that is a kind of kalanchoe. We also have the same plant and it thrives on neglect.
