Hello all, my mum bought these as Christmas decorations but they are very pretty so she would like to know what they in order to keep them going if possible!

    A type of Kalanchoe ( succulent ) I think.

    I think they are both Kalanchoe?
    When down go out and buy a packet of seeds

    I agree :)
    They need good drainage, so gritty compost, don't let them sit in water. I grow mine in a terracotta  pot on a south facing window sill and water infrequently. If the leaves are plump they don't need any, if they begin to look thinner or wizened, it is time to water. Far safer to keep them too dry than too wet. Mine has been trouble free for a good few years, though it could do with re-potting  now. Good luck with yours :)
