Baby Plants

Some months ago at a market I bought an unidentified succulent that looked interesting. The leaves are a nice shape, and have attractive purple blotches on the backs. Since then it has grown, and it suddenly got a lot more interesting when this happened:

Tiny baby plants are growing from the leaves!

At least this allowed me to finally identify the plant. One of its common names is "Mother of Thousands", and it was scientifically Kalanchoe daigremontiana but is now Bryophyllum daigremontianum apparently. It is also potentially quite weedy, as it reproduces so prolifically. But it doesn't like frost so I won't be putting it outside anyway.


  1. Interesting leaf with it’s babies growing off it.

  2. What a neat plant--nice addition to your collection hugs, Julierose

  3. This plant looks like it belongs in a video game. Amazing surprise.
