Please help me identify this succulent.. Little buds sprung on the sides of its leaves and grow roots unto itself.. And a just falls off and grow a new plant. Hope you could give me its name. Thank you.


Kalanchoe daigremontiana, sometimes referred to as Mother of Thousands, though that name also gets used for Kalanchoe delagoensis and Bryophyllum daigremontianum. The latter is typically called Mother of Millions though.

This is such a fun plant, though in some areas of the world its considered a noxious weed. Those little babies fall off and take root making it difficult to get rid of completely.

But for those of us who grow it in containers and/or indoors, its really fun to propagate!
