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!

About Me

Hi! My name is Liza. Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting! I'm a Midwestern gal now living in Arizona, after many years of living in and owning a plant care business in New Mexico.

Plants are living, breathing creatures, and if they're indoor plants, they are 100% dependent on human care. They cannot water themselves.

I can beautify your home, office, or patio with plants and flowers. I have 13 years of experience growing plants, and friendships.

Please let me know if you have questions or if you would like help with your plants or garden. You can reach me at lizatheplantlady (at) gmail (dot) com or follow me on Twitter, Lizawheeler7.

All photos are mine unless otherwise noted. All content is also entirely my hard work. If you'd like to use any content or photos, all you have to do is ask. If you take without asking, you are a thief. And thieves suck. So don't suck. We have a deal? Good.
