Mother of Thousand - Kalanchoe daigremontiana

Also known as Devil's spine & Mexican Hat.
I guess there is many varieties to this plant.
I can't really remember how I got this plant.
But I do remember that this was one plant that is difficult to rid off.

I had placed them as hanging plants together with other succulents & cactus.

The one thing I admire is the rosy formation the plant makes together with all the little plantlets it produce. But till today, I haven't get to see them bloom.

This is my current ones.
Just 2 pots at the balcony with my cactus.
I love the gloss looking red splash on the leaves.

These are another picture I took near my office where I found this plant growing in a planter box. Its a sad thing to note that it goes to much abuse. If taken cared properly, it would have been a very beautiful array of mother of thousands.

I guess no one cares much about this invasive plant.
Whoever planted this would have thought..
"at least, its not grass or weed"
