    So, I bought a Kalanchoe like a month ago from.. a questionable place.

    I have never over-watered it, I made sure of that, because this isn't the first plant I have. I keep it indoors, because I live in an apartment without a balcony, but I make sure she gets enough air every day.

    First, the soil had some kind of grey mould on it and I took action immediately - with a solution made out of hydrogen peroxide+water. It was alright for a few days.. but yesterday I noticed some really odd looking patches. And, what I think to be some black bugs.

    I have no idea what they are - and whether they truly are bugs.

    Does anyone know? I don't know what to do, I really like this plant and it's not in my nature to just give up on things, I'd do anything to help it.

    Also, is it a dangerous thing? Because I also have Aloes, Haworthias, Cacti.

    I have to mention that the root has no problem! I took it out of the soil and inspected it.. it's not rotting so I'm really lost.. 45274019_778349519163928_892361279165956096_n.jpg

    This is how the leaves have been looking ever since I bought her.. All of the Kalanchoe flowers had the same issue!

    I don't really know to be honest, but my first thought would be a fungal disease...

    Some of the leaves look kind of soggy. Any chance you're over-watering it? I haven't dealt with this myself, but I've heard they get these black spots when they start rotting from over-watering. They are succulents and should not be allowed to sit in water or soggy soil.
    That was my thought, but I'm no expert, could be fungal or something else.
