Mother of Thousands Kalanchoe

Tiny plantlets along the edge of the leaves give rise to this plant’s common name. Consider adding the Mother of Thousands kalanchoe to your indoor garden.

This succulent has large blue-green leaves that cover the stem from top to bottom. Small plantlets form along the leaves and eventually drop to the ground and form roots. These small plants can be transplanted into a container of their own.

Grow the Mother of Thousands kalanchoe in a brightly lit location in a well-drained potting mix. A terra cotta pot with drainage holes filled with a cacti and succulent potting mix will insure good drainage. Water thoroughly whenever the top few inches of soil starts to dry.

Fertilize as needed when plants are actively growing in spring and early summer. Use a dilute solution of houseplant fertilizer.

Move to a cool location and allow the soil to go a bit drier during the winter months.

A bit more information: You may find Mother of Thousands listed as Bryophyllum daigremontianum, or Kalanchoe daigremontiana. It may take a bit of effort to locate a plant or two. Start with a visit to your local garden center or succulent nursery. They may sell the plant or know of a local source. Otherwise look on-line for a reputable source.
