      I know this post was from a couple of years ago and you may not even have the plant any more. If you do I would love to have a start as well. It is beautiful

    How about seeds?

    Since it it a cactus, probably use one of those shipping small envelopes and place a moist peace of paper towel inside. Probably will not need much more.If I send you a prepaid one, would you send me some please?

    Dalila... I'd be happy to send you some too. I've never seen seeds on it. When each flower is spent it forms a ball of plantlets about a 1/2" in diameter. Last year I let some fall into a pot and one of them took root and grew. Had I been more attentive I'm pretty I could have gotten several plants from just one ball.

    Marilyn, I got this plant when my step-mother had to move into a nursing home and knew nothing about it when it came to me, I still know very little but here is what I found on Wikipedia... "Kalanchoe /ˌkæləŋˈkoʊ.iː/,[1] also written Kalanchöe or Kalanchoë, is a genus of about 125 species of tropical, succulent flowering plants in the family Crassulaceae, mainly native to the Old World but with a few species now growing wild in the New World following introduction of the species." There is a lot more I just copied the first paragraph.
