Oh dear, it’s starting:

Good To Grow, Liza's photos, Quirky Kalanchoe

This cute little plant was a volunteer in a pot with a different succulent, and for a long time, I had no idea what she was. Since then, I determined that she’s probably a Kalanchoe daigremontiana, or Mother of Thousands plant. The thousands refers to the little plantlets that are beginning to grow along the edges of the leaves. Apparently they’ll fall off and start new plants down below the mother plant.

Despite my opening sentence, I’m not actually worried about thousands of babies. That name could practically be applied to every succulent – it seems like they all propagate super easily. Which is fine by me, as I think they’re so cute!
