The Flapjack Succulent (Kalanchoe luciae) is also known as a Paddle Plant because of the paddle or clam-like shape of its leaves that form in rosette clusters.

Water frequency: ​Every 10 to 14 days.

With its succulent qualities, it's quite adapt at storing water for longish periods of time between waterings. It’s best to allow the moss ball to dry out completely between waterings.


Fill a bowl with room temperature water. Place your kokedama in the water, plant side up. Push the moss ball down so that it is fully submerged and begins to absorb water. Allow soaking for 10-25 minutes, or until fully saturated with water.

Note: We use rainwater. If you use tap water, we recommend letting a bucket of water seat outside for at least 8 hours at daylight while the chlorine evaporates.

Light: Full sun, Part Shade

Flapjack likes a lot of sun. It can do fine in a partial sun position too. If the plant gets enough light during the cooler winter months, its green leaves are more likely to develop the red tips that it's known for. In very hot, sunny summer months, you may need to offer your Flapjack a little protection against intense direct sunlight as this can result in damage to the leaves.


Your Flapjack Succulent will appreciate being fed a balanced and diluted fertilizer during its growth period over the spring and summer. Once every couple of months should be more than enough.

Over-fertilizing, just like over-watering, can result in root rot or the formation of powdery mildew on these succulents.
