Christine de Beer Floral Lifestyle Design
Christmas Kalanchoe, Kalanchöe or Kalanchoë
Depending on the species but mainly Southern Africa, Madagascar, Asia and Europe
White apricot, orange, red, pink and combinations of those colours
There are more than 125 species with new hybrid plants being cultivated to withstand colder temperatures
It is a succulent and will last well out of water
Ornamental rock gardens, terrariums or as growing designs. Flowers work well as body flower designs
Cold water shocks the growing plant and it will shrivel up. Remove the flowering stalks as they begin to fade. Let the plant dry out before watering.
Every week I add a new design with related tutorials. Be sure to subscribe to receive an email notification with design inspiration.
This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.
Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
