Kalanchoes don't like to be wet all of the time; let it get a little on the dry side before watering. They love sun, as long as the heat isn't too excessive. They can be summered outdoors, and usually bloom in winter/early spring. Bring them inside before frost.

I like to prune mine after every blooming, but I live in a climate where it blooms year round. I am not sure where you live, but if you have a cold winter, prune them heavily just before the spring growth season. Depending on where you live that could be anytime between January and April. If these are older established roses. Prune them back after each blooming during the growing season. You will get a lot of flowering this way.
1. Keep the water up to them so they do not dry out completely but do not over water. Many species of flowers will die quickly if allowed to dry out, especially in hot summers. Get yourself a good book covering the species of plants you have to improve you knowledge in caring for the plants.
2. Fertilise with a suitable slow release fertiliser in spring and summer.
3. Mulch the beds with a suitable product to retard weeds and retain soil moisture.
4. If the flowers are planted in a heavy soil dig a little river sand into the soil where possible in existing beds.
5. Don't use garden chemicals to ward off pests. If you have pest susceptible flower species that will require chemical spraying and the like, remove them and replace them with hardier more resilient species.
prefer plastic plants since they are more durable; however it really comes down
to personal preference. Some people like
the look of silk plants better - they say that they appear more natural and
sway with the motion of the water. Nevertheless,
if you have either bettas/guppies you should definitely use silk plants. Plastic plants are too harsh for these breeds
and can actual harm them.
Why Prune Roses
Encourage new growth and bloom
Remove dead wood
Improve air circulation
Shape the plant
Tools You'll Need
Thick Gloves (preferably long ones)
Rose Pruning Basics
Use clean, sharp tools
Look at the overall plant, but begin pruning from the base of the plant.
Prune to open the center of the plant to light and air circulation
Make your cuts at a 45-degree angle, about 1/4 inch above a bud that is facing toward the outside of the plant.
Make sure it is a clean cut (not ragged)
Remove all broken, dead, dying or diseased wood (Any branches that look dry, shriveled or black. Cut until the inside of the cane is white.)
Remove any weak or twiggy branches thinner than a pencil
If cane borers are a problem in your area, seal the cut with a white glue, such as Elmer?s.
Remove ****** growth below the graft.
Remove any remaining foliage
When to Prune Roses
Timing is determined by the class of the rose plant and the zone in which it is growing. Most rose pruning is done in the spring, with the blooming of the forsythia as a signal to get moving. If you don't have forsythia, watch for when the leaf buds begin to swell on your rose plants, meaning the bumps on the canes get larger and reddish in color.
Hybrid tea roses are the most particular about pruning. If you don't know what type of rose you have, watch the plant for a season. If it blooms on the new growth it sends out that growing season, prune while dormant or just about to break dormancy, as stated above. If it blooms early, on last year's canes, don't prune until after flowering.
