Plants in the Calandiva series contain 32 petals, whereas kalanchoe contains 4.

Calandiva is a hybrid series of ​Kalanchoe blossfeldiana​ with the same habit of blooming and the same requirements for good growth.

It's hardy in the same USDA zones as its parent.

Both plants grow well when planted outdoors within their hardiness range and also as houseplants.

The bloom clusters on ​a Kalanchoe range in colors of red, pink and yellow, with each flower containing 4 petals.

Flowers in the Calandiva series resemble tiny roses, with the showy flower clusters containing 32 petals.

Cultivars within the series contain flower colors of pink, red, bicolors of pink and white, white, orange and purple.

The blooms on each type typically last for up to 6 weeks.

Both plants produce fleshy green succulent leaves that are scalloped on the edges.

The clusters of blooms are held above the leaves by fleshy flower stalks.

They produce multiple branches on upright plants that grow anywhere from 6' to 1.5' high, with a similar width.

Proper watering will prevent root rot.

During the growing season, allow the soil to dry before watering again.

If you're growing the plant in pots, you can test the soil by sticking your finger into it, and if the top couple of inches are dry, water until it runs out the bottom drain holes.

In winter, cut back watering to every few weeks, as the plant is dormant and not actively growing.

Once warm temperatures in spring return, you can up it a bit, just remember don't overwater. 

Feed them during the growing season and stop fertilizing in winter while the plants are dormant.

Use a water-soluble blend for blooming houseplants that has a higher middle number.

This is the phosphorus content, which promotes blooming.

Apply monthly at half strength during the growing season.

Pruning needs are minimal.

Snip off spent flowers or leggy growth with garden pruners.
