On my Kalanchoe, some of the leaves are dried, crispy and yellow. Any idea as to what I'm doing wrong?

your best bet is to Google the plant you have and see what other gardeners say about it. Personally, I am not familiar with that particular plant.

Sounds to me as tho its dead or dying .
Can you trim the dead leaves off to try and promote re growth?
Could be a mixture of things maybe a tad more information on your soil, feeding/watering habits .

I do not know this plant

Here’s a picture of it. I needs a lot of sun, and I’m thinking that maybe it’s not getting enough? I’m going to move it closer to a window and see what happens. The soil is not dry, so, it’s not like it’s lacking in moisture.

Could it not be the window that is making the problem ?

@sandystrachan Could be, I don’t know. Not sure what the problem is. Kalanchoe’s can tolerate a lot of sun. I have few other plants beside it that are healthier than the Kalanchoe and require less sunlight. So, I can’t see too much sunlight being a reason for the problem.

This site mention fungus, but also mentions the yellowing dried leaves you do . They say too much water can make the leaves go yellow . I didn’t read it all tho .

Plants need the proper amount and kind of food, water, soil and light. Google can find specific info. I would repot after pruning severely and double check the requirement.

Here ya go.
