This is Mother of Thousands (Kalanchoe daigremonitana)
Also known as Devil's spine & Mexican Hat.
I guess this one is considered more of a "pest" than a plant.
A lot of gardeners just hate it as they are so invasive just sprouting their plant-let everywhere. Many gardeners wage war with this one & I guess most of them are still fighting the battle.
I still like this one very much - more to do with the reason of lack of care & I mean literally. This one is going in a small sealed pot. I had placed these babies here and they have grown. I guess the heat had given them the stripes and spots - more like a leopard, don't you think?
These are grown in a small milk can tins.
They had aged and rusted but the plant is just doing so fine.
I often see broken pottery used as creative planting medium and I have decided to do so here. This is Mother of Thousand babies fastened in between the soil and clay pieces.
These are in a wooden box.
Excellent idea on reusing those broken pottery James! This plant, Mother of Thousand is very invasive. But I see the plants are quite isolated for yours. So it is ok.
The Mother of Thousand cannot do so well in wet areas - daily watering can kill the plant.
I guess its not so invasive after all.
This was really helpful in dealing with my plant....I was over watering mine and now I know better...I thought because of the leaf being more flat than plump like most succulents that it had high water requirements. Thanks and keep up the good work!
