I bought a Kalanchoe for my desk at work a month or so ago when I was having a bad day. I'd like to keep it here but I may have some environmental challenges. I sit near a window but get
only about an hour of direct sunlight in the afternoon. I also have the HVAC vent blowing down along the window in my cube. Because of these factors, I moved her (Miss Kalanchoe Prime) to the top of my credenza, directly under flourescent lights. The care tag says she requires a well lit room.
Now that the flowers are fading, I'm wondering if I should do anything. Should I clip off the stems once the flowers are completely gone? Pinch off just the parts that had the flowers? Leave it alone? Also, is the flourescent light too much? I'd really rather have it near the window (like it is in the picture) but I'm afraid the air may harm it. On top of my credenza it may be getting this air as well but maybe not as direct. Or maybe I should just take it home and find something more suitable for the environment here (Requiring low/moderate light and not temperature sensitive)?
All suggestions and comments are appreciated! Hope you all are having a GREAT day!
