Magic Bells kalanchoe is a relative newcomer to the houseplant market. The flowering succulent is a member of the Crassulaceae family, which also includes the jade plant and hens and chickens. Magic Bells has 5-inch glossy green succulent leaves that store water. The flowers are pale green rounded tubes that resemble green grapes. When the bottom of the flower buds open, four small orange petals that look like a lantern emerge. The bloom continues for eight to 12 weeks. The plant is easy to care for and thrives in full sun. When watering, allow the soil to dry and then soak it with room-temperature water; avoid getting the foliage wet. Magic Bells kalanchoe can be seen at the visitors center at the Franklin Park Conservatory.
