Deadheading

So, I've learned that deadheading flowering plants not only makes them more aesthetically pleasing, but also promotes re-blooming and better overall plant growth. :eelement:

I've done some deadheading on my snap dragons outside, and today, I deadheaded my Kalanchoe that I have hanging in the living room. I looked up how to do it and I'm glad I did. I would have thought that I should just pinch off the dead and dying flower clusters, but in researching it, I found that you are supposed behead it where the flower stem meets the main stem of the plant. :behead:

Who woulda thunk that beheading things could be a good thing? :giggle:
