Do Kalanchoes like a lot of water?

The soil must dry out to a depth of 2-3 cm between waterings, but if you have planted the plant outdoors, you should water it daily in the evening during the hot season. However, always check the soil in the pot before watering.

Note that you should check the drainage of the pot at least once a month to remove excess water from under the pot, as the accumulation of water at the bottom of the pot can lead to root rot and fungal diseases. Excessive watering or lack of drainage will cause Kalanchoe to drop.
