5. Bryophyllum Mangin
This magnificent pot plant, Bryophyllum manginii, is still more popular with us under the name Kalanchoe Manginii. But whatever you call it, among the species of Kalanchoe and its relatives, the Madagascar bell is one of the most catchy. This culture is appreciated for its abundance and the effect of variegated ripples, which create loose inflorescences.
The leaves of bryophyllum Mangin easily betray the kinship of the plant with the Kalanchoe: fleshy, oval, with a beautiful jagged edge, they shine beautifully and, together with drooping short shoots, create lush bushes.
The foliage of this bryophyllum is very reminiscent of Blossfeld's Kalanchoe, it also flaunts with a light green, pale color. A plant with a height of 15 to 30 cm is grown both as an ampelous culture and in a pot form, limiting the length of the shoots.
Inflorescences of bryophyllum Mangin rise above the leaves and create a kind of lace. The tubular flowers are much larger than those of the Kalanchoe. Drooping, elegant, loose clusters of inflorescences due to the sparse arrangement of flowers make it possible to perfectly examine each "tube".
The color of bryophyllum flowers is never monotonous: the light base of the tubes and the bright pharynx create a feeling of two colors. The color scheme includes orange, pink and red. It is a spring-flowering succulent species that delights from February to May.
Bryophyllum Mangina looks especially good in small rooms and in the kitchen, but is suitable for any room
Bryophyllum propagation methods: apical cuttings
Bryophyllum Mangina belongs to unpretentious plants that will not cause trouble for beginners. This is a light-loving culture, but it does not tolerate direct sunlight. New varieties thrive year round at room temperature, but a cool, short winter improves flowering in any bryophyllum. The plant is transplanted at any time during the spring, but it is better to change containers only as needed.
Wintering bryophyllum: if possible, from 12 to 15 degrees
Despite its status as a simple plant, bryophyllum requires systemic care and does not respond well to extreme events. Water the plant carefully, avoiding any dampness or drying out of the substrate. Top dressing is rarely applied, only during the period of active growth. It is advisable to prune the plant after flowering in order to achieve thickening of the bushes and increase the decorative effect and abundance of flowers.
