Kalanchoes are succulents that are very popular as interior plants. Kalanchoe plants belong to the family Crassulaceae and genus Kalanchoe that consists of around 125 species. These tropical flowering plants are natives to Madagascar, but a few species are found in Brazil and some parts of Asia. Most of these plants grow to a height of around one meter. Even though the appearance of individual kalanchoe species may vary, in general, these plants have some common features. Most kalanchoe plants have large, thick, and succulent leaves, and numerous stems. These interior plants develop brilliantly colored flowers, that are produced in terminal clusters. There are many varieties that produce flowers in different colors. The most common among them are red, pink, yellow, orange and white. These plants bloom during late fall and last till late winter. Some of them may produce flowers throughout the year. A characteristic feature of kalanchoes is the growth of new cells on the inner sides of the petals, so as to force open the flowers. Such cells are also found on the outer surfaces of the petals, to aid closure of the flowers.

Kalanchoe blossfeldiana is the most popular and commonly found interior plants among the kalanchoe species. Other popular species include Kalanchoe manginii, Kalanchoe beharensis, Kalanchoe pinnata and Kalanchoe porphyrocalyx. Kalanchoe plant propagation may vary with the species. While some species are propagated through stem cuttings, others develop plantlets along the leaf margins.
