Kalosanthes greenhouse plants

Kalosanthes greenhouse plantsKalosanthes are howy greenhouse succulent plants. A light, turfy loam is suitable for them, and they may be increased by placing cuttings of the young shoots in a sandy soil on a slight hotbed in spring.

Pinch them back so as to produce a bushy growth, and give support to the heavy heads of bloom. The cuttings should be left for twenty-four hours to dry before they are planted.

The Kalosanthes plants require very little water, and they flower in July. Their height differs from six inch to one feet.
