Leaves simple, usually ternate, sub-cylindrical, up to 6 inches long, up to 0.6 cm wide, lower surface sulcate, often spotted with reddish brown, margins near apex with 3 - 9 conical teeth between which spoon-shaped bulbils are produced.

Environment

Locate the Alligator Plant in bright, but indirect light for several hours per day. When growing Kalanchoe outdoors, avoid direct afternoon sun.Too much direct sunlight may cause leaves to become sunburned

This plant does need good drainage and is best potted in a soil mix containing ECA or sand for sharper drainage.

Landscape Use

Suitable for Container, Rock Garden & Xeriscaping

Most succulents need to be watered twice a week during summers and only once in monsoon & winters. Varieties like Haworthias, Crassulas and Gasterias are well suited for low-light indoors and window-sills. If the leaves get too bulky, it is a sign of overwatering & if the leaves look shrivelled it is a sign of less watering.

As a general rule of thumb, all the ones with colourful leaves like Echeverias, Sedeveria and Graptopetalum like bright sunlight and semi shade in extreme summers. They cannot be kept indoors or in full shade. All succulents love morning sun.

You can fertilise your succulent once a month.

Watering tips : Make sure NOT to water on the plant itself. Water directly in the soil. You can use a cup or a glass to make sure the water does not spray on leaves. When watering, make sure water comes out of the drainage hole.
