Looks interesting.

Yes. The flowers are hollow, very delicate and like mini hot air balloons. Most unusual.

Wow that is different for a Kalanchoe...I'm used to the little bright red or yellow ground cover plants! bell flowers really are interesting..are they always the light green? (I suppose technically they are brachts...like bougainvillea? ) Great!
