What Is This Succulent With A Red Flower?

Ask The Plant Expert:

What is the plant with the red flower? I have 4 identical plant dishes (picture attached) that I bought in this condition. Each contain the same 3 plants, I believe, and I think I’ve identified 2 of the 3 plants in this pot, minus the “jade looking” one that has the red flower on top. Do you know what the “jade-looking one” is really named?

Also, do you think they look over or under watered (or may have another problem)? The soil does smell musty/damp. I think I need to repot them, but should I let them lay out and dry out for a few days or other? I know these are a lot of questions, but if nothing else, can you at least identify and name the jade-looking plant? THANKS!

Over-watered Kalanchoe Photo

Flower Shop Network Plant Expert Reply:

All of your plant are a type of Kalanchoe. As for the exact species, it is hard to tell since the blooms and leaves are in a state of stress. My best guess would be Kalanchoe farinacea. Since Kalanchoes are succulent in nature, they are susceptible to over-watering.

I does look like they have been over-watered. I recommend Re-potting into a cactus/succulent soil as soon as possible. I hope this information was helpful. Please let me know if I can help with anything else.

  2. Meryl, my suggestion would be to see if you could find a job in a flower shop to learn more about the floral business. You might also find classes or workshops in your area to learn more about designing flowers. I would contact your state’s floral association and ask what education opportunities are available locally. Hope this helps.
